This topic is important to me because I&#x2019;ve spent a lot of time helping Urban Ministries. I&#x2019;ve seen the need for volunteers and would love nothing more than to help as best I can. This past year I went with a group of friends to Urban Promise, located in Wilmington DE. We spent a week Helping their youth organization. \n
Urban Promise is one of the largest non-profit organizations that deals with Urban environments.\nThey originated in Camden NJ, back in 1985 by a man named Anthony Campolo(Professor of Sociology, Eastern University). He recruited college students to work with the youth in Camden. They quickly grew and spread all across the United States. \n\n\n\n
Camden was their first building plant and later grew into Wilmington, De and Toronto, Canada. Camden is still the largest our of the three\nPeople from all around america come to voluntarily help with their programs...\n\n
The Lenten Challenge is simple. Simply give up something that you would normally do for a day- be it 24 hours without eating, watching tv, using your phone or any technological device for that matter.\n
