WATERSUNDAY WITH THE WATERBOYS
Long’s commitment to bring clean water to East Africa through the Waterboys Initiative – along with WorldServe’s experience in working with faith community leaders, made possible the recent launch of WaterSunday with the Waterboys. A challenge to congregations and groups, the effort will provide a chance for congregations, communities, families and individuals to unite to raise funds and awareness for the clean water crisis.
More than 100 Philadelphia-area faith leaders gathered with Long (a current member of the Philadelphia Eagles defensive line) to kick-off the effort. Thank you so much to Chris, the people of Philadelphia and all the generous participants who make this event a success.
