Youth Missionary Society Collects 8555 Ties in the “5000 Ties 4 Guys” Project 

The Youth Missionary Society of The A.M.E. Zion Church has completed another project in 2023-2024. “5000 Ties 4 Guys” was our first project directly benefitting the young men in our communities. The Youth Missionary Society is inclusive of young women and young men and seeks to serve them. 
Each Presiding Elder District was asked to collect and donate at least 50 ties.  With over 120 stateside Presiding Elder Districts, that goal was reachable. We are excited to share that we exceeded our goal once again by collecting 8555 ties that were donated to young people throughout our various communities.  The donations were given to young men in an orchestra in the Mid-West, Young Gentlemen’s groups in New Jersey, and high school young men’s groups in Maryland, and the list continues.
Special thanks to all stateside Episcopal Areas for contributing to this project.  Four Episcopal Areas contributed over 1000 ties: South Atlantic, North Eastern, Mid-Atlanticand Eastern North Carolina.  The South Atlantic Episcopal District led the campaign with the collection of 2695 ties.  Kudos to Missionary Supervisor Lovetta Holmes. North Eastern was in second place, and Mid-Atlantic rounded out the top three Episcopal Areas.  Special recognition goes to Missionary Supervisor D. Diane Proctor and Missionary Supervisor Devieta Moore.  We are also grateful to our Missionary Supervisor, Sis. Camille Starnes, Gelenia Frencher, Laurenna Crenshaw, Rev. Felica Thompson, and H. Jean McMurray Leake for encouraging their missionaries to participate in this project. 
Thank you, Zion, for assisting our Youth in aiding the young men in our surrounding communities.
