DB NLC: Alumni Service Trip 2018
Aug 8 – Aug 11 all-day

DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council (NLC) Alumni are invited to spend four days in Boston ahead of the College Summit at The Mother Church to engage with and support the homeless community in Boston. One evening we will be pairing up with Miracle Messages to host a simple dinner and conversation for the homeless and key supporting community members. Alumni are then encouraged to stick around in Boston for the TMC college summit.

What Miracle Messages is all about: “Miracle Messages reunites homeless with their loved ones, and the rest of us as their neighbors. … To date, we’ve reunited 111 loved ones. 25% of reunions have led to stable housing, and more than 80% have led to a positive outcome. And we are just getting started.”

Fundraising

Alumni are launching a campaign to raise funds and help offset the cost of the trip. We can invest in our community now, knowing we can support future alumni down the line. Please help spread
the world about our online fundraising efforts! Fundraiser will run in mid May (help spread the word!) and is found at this link: https://adventureunlimited.ignitecx.com//NLCAlumni2018
