This June is the first graduating class from the Christopher House K-8 School. Christopher House has been working hard through a very challenging year to be in contact with all its scholars personally, virtually, and in person. We are asking for your monetary support of the Presbyterian Women CHRISTOPHER HOUSE BACKPACK FUND, during the month of June, to ensure each scholar will have the backpack and supplies needed for the new school year! We are grateful for all your generous and loyal support in the past. The suggested donation is $20, but all donations are welcome! You can donate online by clicking the button below (select C House Back Packs from drop-down menu) or by mail (write CH Backpack on memo line). Your support MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE!

More about the exhibit:
Mandela: Struggle for Freedom traces the history of the fight against apartheid in South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as one of its central figures. With immersive environments, Mandela promotes human rights with a clear message: all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Nelson Mandela was one of the most famous human rights defenders of the 20th-century and the face of a movement against racial injustice. His unbreakable will inspired people around the globe to mobilize for human rights and contributed to a worldwide crusade demanding racial equality. A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and South Africa’s first democratically elected president in 1994, Mandela devoted his life to fighting apartheid and creating a more just society.
