One of the ministries at Sankofa is our People’s Pantry Project where we collect food and clothing for our brother’s and sisters in need. For the month of March 2021, we are collecting the following items below to assist our families in need in Jackson Mississippi. As a result of the winter storms, they are experiencing a water crisis akin to that of experienced in Flint Michigan.

On Saturday, March 13 please consider bringing a donation of the following items to our church between the hours of 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM. These items will be sent directly to the deserving families in Jackson You can also give a monetary donation for this cause via our Cashapp $sankofaatl or via our website Please be sure to put PPP in the comment fields.

God bless and see you next Saturday!
