Plumb Travels to Brooklyn to Experience the Work of Metro World Child
Plumb to Help Shine a Light on Organization Helping the Needs of Inner-City Children in the US, Romania, Kenya, South Africa, India and the Philippines.
Nashville, TN – Plumb has always been an advocate for children in need, especially in the inner city. This week, she is traveling to Brooklyn to spend a weekend working first hand with Metro World Child, and beginning a long-term partnership with the organization. Plumb will be raising awareness and sharing her experience with Metro World Child at www.plumbinfo.com/metroworldchild, adding more videos and content through the summer.
For the past 33 years, Metro World Child has served youth who are growing up in the roughest circumstances and environments around the globe. Believing that transformation comes from the inside, the organization is purposefully designed to break destructive cycles and give children the hope they need to create a new path for their lives. Through sound biblical principles that transcend cultures, denominations, race and generations, Metro World Child reaches nearly 100,000 inner-city children and their families in New York City and various urban centers around the world each week.
This weekend, Plumb will experience their work in New York City, where she will speak at the weekly staff meeting, visit children in their homes, help with several of the weekday “Sidewalk SundaySchools” and share in their “Indoor Sunday School,” where over 4,000 children participate each weekend.
Metro World Child is unique in their ability for involvement. A global, faith-based humanitarian organization, Metro operates in more than 220 sites in New York City alone with after school programs, Sunday School services, child sponsorship, special programs and personal home visits. Supporters are encouraged to have a ‘hands on’ experience, offering internships, ministry opportunities, volunteer opportunities and site visits.
