FCC Assists Acting Compassionately Everyday
by Rick Tipton
Rose Smith of Louisville’s Chickasaw neighborhood founded the ACE Project (Acting Compassionately Everyday) after the shooting death of her son Cory “Ace” Crowe in 2014. She and other mothers of victims of gun violence organized to create a more positive environment for youth in the West End. The focus of the foundation is to provide these youth with resources and experiences beyond their immediate community.
FCC was very excited to partner with the ACE project again this year, and provided a grant which allowed ACE to take a group of 30 youth and chaperones to Memphis Tennessee to the Civil Rights Museum and to the Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum. Grant money also funded the purchase of a serger for their sewing program; one of this fall’s projects was the kids making their own warm pajamas.
The wholeness grant used to fund this ministry was made possible through your faithful financial support of our church and its ministries and help fund a variety of efforts to make our world a better place.
