RELEASE: Nyack's Campus in Puerto Rico Leads Community Outreach
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Students and faculty of Seminario Teológico de Puerto Rico (STPR) the Alliance Theological Seminary campus in Puerto Rico) will impact their surrounding neighborhood next Saturday, December 2, 2017 by providing supplies and essential items to the residents of the area. They will distribute water, non-perishable food, toiletries and other needed assistance such as psychological counseling services.
In addition, food vouchers have been distributed to more than 146 people through a contribution of $6,000 from the Council of Churches of Puerto Rico. To date, this number includes 51 children, 90 adults and five senior citizens.
"We do not want our neighbors to see students just entering a building to study, but also to know the human side of our school--men and women committed to spreading the gospel by ministering to others, and also doing social work during these dramatic moments that Puerto Rico is going through," says STPR's Executive Director Dr. Julio Aponte.
Dr. Aponte asks for our prayer support so that the STPR team will make an influential impact on the people they will reach.
