A man woke up one day and said to himself, “I turn 50 this year and I have enjoyed 50 great years! This year I would like to ﬁgure out a way to give back. How can I organize some people to help me accomplish this mission?" He then approached Stone Ridge Church to be a part of this vision. We were so taken by the vision and saw God’s hand all over it that we joined in just to see what God would do. At each step of the process God has been overwhelmingly faithful.
From this simple vision the “50for50 Project" became a reality. Our goal was 50 projects for 50 different organizations by October 26, 2013.
- We ended up with 55 projects instead of 50
- We completed 36 of the projects at 100% or greater
- We collected and delivered 2431 objects
- We collected $1936.00 in donations to complete projects
- Estimated value of items collected — $20,771
Since that first year, the 50for50 Project has become an annual event. It quickly spread from one church to many churches, businesses, groups and organizations helping to make a difference in our community.
This is our 5th year. Our goal is 26,000 products delivered to our needs organizations. You can help make that happen!
