*As folks prepare for Easter Sunday, Kenny Lattimore (pictured) will be among those serving displaced individuals on the day before for the Midnight Mission feet washing.
More than 100 One Church International volunteers are expected to join the singer, actor/realty TV star Ray J and pastor Toure Roberts as they wash and place adequate shoes and socks on the feet of hundreds of displaced individuals in the courtyard of The Midnight Mission on Skid Row in downtown LA.
The event, which will run from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on April 19, is being organized by the ASHÉ Foundation (http://theashefoundation.org), an organization dedicated to aiding disadvantaged and underprivileged children of African nations by distributing shoes, clothing, basic necessities, and services. Although the Foundation was set up to help the less fortunate of African nations, Los Angeles and its surrounding communities remained on the mind of founder Dion Fearon as he created the Midnight Mission feet washing to help support the displaced, disadvantaged, and underprivileged in LA’s backyard.
The outpouring of support from church families like One Church International Family, ASHÉ board members and the Los Angeles community has been amazing”, Fearon said in a press release.
In addition to the feet washing, the Mission offers counseling, education, training and job placement for homeless people as well food, shelter, clothing, personal hygiene needs, and medical care.
