One thousand people, each with $10 in their pockets, equals $10,000 to spend helping those in need.
That’s the premise behind the second annual Thousand Ten Project organized by The Alley, a local non-traditional church affiliated with Matthew 25 Street Ministries, which takes its message of God’s love and service-based ministry to the streets and neighborhoods of Seymour.
Volunteers will be divided into teams of 10, giving them the ability to pool their money to canvas distressed areas in the city to make a difference in people’s lives, pastor Rick Wilson said.
The money can be used to meet whatever needs people may have, from purchasing groceries and prescriptions to paying for auto repair and utility bills.
This year’s event will take place Sept. 15, beginning with last-minute registration at 9 a.m. at Shields Park.
