Rivers' Edge Provides Food & Schooling to East Africa Community

Rivers’ Edge Countertops announced it would be partnering with Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Blanchard, in presenting a charitable donation to Hope for the Future Africa. The employees of Rivers’ Edge each pledged a portion of their paycheck to assist in providing food and schooling to Kachere, a small community outside Malawi, east Africa. 

Jeremiah Rivers, the owner of Rivers’ Edge Countertops, chose to support Hope for the Future Africa after his family visited the town of Kachere with the church, supplying mats and blankets to the families found sleeping on dirt floors. The Rivers family has been involved with this organization for a few years and now advocates for the community’s education efforts.

“When my family visited and saw that these kids didn’t have food to eat, it resonated with me having a son of my own,” Jeremiah shared. “Everyone should have food and the opportunity to attend school. Education is a key ability when conducting business trades with nearby villages.”
