Thank You for Supporting Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma Victims!
Special thanks to Miles College students and CMEs from the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Episcopal Districts
August 21, 2017 - Atlanta, GA) The Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) Church fed over 1,000 persons at a Homeless Banquet on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the Atlanta Civic Center during its Sixth Annual Unity Summit and Lay Institute. “From the Seats to the Streets” was an initiative to encourage and serve the homeless, provide counseling and a health fair. Four homes with clear deeds and titles were donated by local CME churches and the Sixth Episcopal District to individuals in Atlanta and Fort Worth, Texas to help combat homelessness. Additionally, two Historically Black Colleges of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church offered assistance to the homeless. Miles College (Birmingham, AL) will provide several full scholarships with housing for the homeless. Paine College (Augusta, GA) is committed to providing three full dormitory housing for homeless students.
The Homeless Banquet was a collaborative initiative with a major financial institution, the CME Church, various sponsors, and entities. Several homeless shelters in the greater Atlanta area are closing soon and the CME Church is working with other organizations to address homelessness and poverty. Local television stations (Channel 2, 5, 11 and 46) covered the Homeless Banquet. Over 700 members of the CME denomination from around the United States including 43 students from Miles based leaders from the Atlanta area, Dr. Charles Steele Jr., National President and CEO of Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and Pastor Timothy McDonald of First Iconium Baptist Church, addressed the gathering.
The featured speaker at the Homeless Banquet was Mr. Richard Montanez, PepsiCo's director of multicultural sales and marketing, North America. Montanez began his career with PepsiCo as a janitor in 1976 and is now a visionary leader who has developed new systems and products for PepsiCo including Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Montanez told his rags to riches story and provided an uplifting message to the men and women who attended the Homeless Banquet while encouraging them to never give up on their dreams. The corporate power structure that could have ignored Montanez or co-opted his idea instead saw his potential, mentored and promoted him. Montanzez has met many U.S. presidents, spoken at the United Nations, serves on several boards, and teaches leadership to MBA students at a California university.
