North Point Technology sponsored a team in the St. Francis Ministry charity golf tournament held Saturday, September 17th, 2016, at Endwell Greens Golf Club in Endwell, NY.
The St. Francis Ministry, founded by Sister Anisia Muthoni with the support of the pastors and parishioners of St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Endicott, NY, works to support children in Sister Anisia's native Kenya by providing them with a place to live, receive medical care, and obtain an education. The Ministry's Mission is as follows:
To give orphans and poor children of Africa the opportunity to receive quality education and other basic needs so that they may become productive members of their community and help to reduce or eliminate the cycle of poverty in which they live. “Education Creates Better Lives”
The Ministry's work in the U.S. is carried out by a large group of volunteers and supporters, including a dedicated Board of Directors. This group arranges for fundraisers, among other things, such as this weekend's golf tournament. North Point personnel worked closely with the Board of Directors for the Ministry and were instrumental in soliciting prizes from local businesses as well as donations of various items, which they made into attractive baskets to be raffled off. We are proud of our association with the St. Francis Ministry and pleased to be a supporter of this fundraiser. We had a great time too!
