In 2017, 347 scholarships were awarded to children from 242 families in need. Qualified applicants were from local families and organizations like A Soldier’s Child, the Nashville Rescue Mission, Safe Haven Family Shelter and Boys & Girls Clubs. Help us share the love of Christ with these kids and provide a positive environment for them to learn about trust, respect, confidence, character and leadership!
