Millennium Fellowship Project: Serving Impoverished Communities
The project primary goal is to support Waco's low-income community by emboldening the growing connection between Baylor University and the greater Waco community. There will be two main tenets of our initiative: a Thanksgiving food giveaway for the low-income, including Waco's homeless population, as well as a Christmas toy donation. The team plan to positively impact about 1,500 people while focusing on meeting the No Poverty Initiative.
