WMU December Project
Dream Center (formerly Tree of Love)
This project offers parents the opportunity to rise above the poverty level by taking classes at the Dream Center in Easley and the Adult Education Center in Pelzer. Classes are to help them learn new skills so that they can acquire a job and be more financially responsible for their family. A few of the classes offered are budgeting, parenting skills and resume writing. Parents earn "dream dollars" for the classes taken and will then be able to purchase gifts for their children's Christmas. Individuals and Sunday School classes are encouraged to purchase gifts to be bought by parents at the Dream Center. There are many opportunities to get involved in this project other than purchasing gifts. Transportation is needed in many different areas. Please see Mary Anne Bunton or Gail Strickland to find out how you can become involved.
