Fund a Need “formerly Bootstrap Challenge” – Make the biggest impact!  Give directly to the Annual Fund of Eastern Area Community Ministries and your investment will help stabilize families and avert crisis.  Your gifts keep the heat on, prevent evictions, and maintain clean water running in homes.  You underwrite English as a Second Language classes, hot meals to homebound seniors, and keep clean diapers on babies’ bottoms.  Is there any better value?
