This episode is part of our Make A Difference Non Profit Spotlight Series, where we highlight non profits, organizations and individuals making a difference in their communities.
Why do we do this series? If we think we know everything about our communities and our neighbors, chances are we do not, meaning, we only see the surface or we only see the negativity, the division and we do not always get offered the stories of those in our communities who are doing it, using their powers for good. Which is what our Make A Difference Non Profit Spotlight is all about! Today we focus on 50K Souls and its founder Minister G. Mandel Copeland, who is also a musician and music director of United Faith Church of Deliverance in Salisbury, Maryland. 50KSouls is an outreach ministry that was established in 2015 and at that time, it consisted of churches and individual volunteers in the local area of Salisbury, MD. That year was monumental for them and #50KSouls fed 75 families and became incorporated as a non-profit organization in the State of Maryland. Their Current Strategy is to build a network of partners (volunteers, churches, and donors) across the country, that will work together to provide outreach to those individuals and communities that find themselves in despair and need, as a result of natural disasters and/or economic disadvantages.
