New Kitchen Completed at San Antonio Men’s Campus

The public is welcome to join students and staff from the San Antonio men’s campus for a ribbon cutting scheduled at 11:45 a.m. to dedicate the new kitchen.  Following the ribbon cutting, a Thanksgiving meal will be served to all in attendance including the families of the Adult & Teen Challenge students.

While the kitchen is ready for use, there is still a huge need for a sprinkler system.  $50,000 must be raised in the next six months for a new sprinkler system in order for the kitchen doors to stay open.  Will you help keep the momentum going and give today?  If you would like to help with the Sprinkler Project, please contact Men’s Director, Floyd Miles III at or call the San Antonio men’s campus at (210) 624-2075.
