Greensburg area residents to gather in support of Orphans

Greensburg resident Sarah Shake is holding a dessert fundraiser on Thursday, April 28th at 7:00 p.m. for The Boaz Project, an organization that serves orphans overseas.

“When I heard that 99% of the world’s orphans don’t have the hope of ever being adopted and learned about the conditions many of them live in—how little their governments do to care for them—I really wanted to help in some way. I knew The Boaz Project personally and was certain I could trust them, so volunteering there seemed like a good place to start. After traveling to India and meeting some of the kids they serve, I was even more motivated to get involved,” said Shake.

She continued, “This Dessert with Boaz will be a great time to spread the word about all God is doing to care for orphans through The Boaz Project and give others the opportunity to help. I’m thrilled that others have already invited friends and offered to pitch in with the event.”

Dessert with Boaz will be a free, one-hour event featuring stories from orphans, updates on the homes the ministry supports, and an opportunity to get involved in caring for orphans. It will be held at Community Church of Greensburg; 1427 W. Vandalia Road, Greensburg.

“We’re so thankful for Sarah’s efforts and are eager to see the impact this community makes for orphans around the world,” said April Jurgensen, founder and Executive Director of The Boaz Project.

Since 1999, The Boaz Project has inspired and equipped leaders around the world to care for orphans in their own communities. They have seen a generation of children they’ve helped defy the grim statistics for orphans in the countries where they work.

The public is invited to attend this free event but must first register at  For more details or to sponsor Dessert with Boaz, contact The Boaz Project office at 317-889-7606 or
