CPAS raises $25,500
The Compassionate Performing Arts Series (CPAS) has been a joint initiative of the First Wesleyan Church and Premiere Productions. Concerts were scheduled throughout 2009 and proceeds beyond the expenses were designated for two ministries: the Citizens against Violence (CAV) of High Point and the Refugee Welcome Network (RWN). Last Sunday a check was presented to each charity in the amount of $12,750. The Refugee Welcome Network has been able avert a person being homeless, provide portable heat, feed some who were hungry and generally be a secondary safety net for the refugees among us. The refugees pictured on the platform are Nu Nu and Sharon. Thank you on behalf of the RWN for your concern for those with needs among us.
