Koinonia Homes for Teens was invited to participate in the State of California Employee’s “Our Promise” campaign launch on the lawn of the State Capitol this year. Paige, Justine and Dante manned the Koinonia booth speaking with several hundred State employees and “Our Promise” campaign managers. All in all, the event was a grand success and Koinonia made many new friends.
“Our Promise” is the State employee’s program that allows them to make charitable donations through payroll deductions to the many wonderful non-profit organizations throughout our state. Many state employees have blessed Koinonia by selecting us as their chosen charity. Needless to say, the teens did great in representing Koinonia, perfecting their public speaking skills and learning about all the different departments and agencies throughout our State’s government.
Many thanks to the “Our Promise” team and the United Way for including us in this year’s event!
