Ship Community Outreach Initiatives
Ship Community Outreach meets immediate needs by providing food and clothing to low income neighbors, giving them dignity through independent low cost grocery shopping, low cost housing, job training and opportunities, health screening and support, and weight training to improve self discipline and self esteem. Ship Community Outreach accomplishes all of this through donations.
