While much of the country focuses its attention on college bowl games and the NFL playoffs, more than 1,200 African-American students from college campuses as far away as California, have come to Atlanta for The Impact Movement’s 2008 Conference and its Day of Outreach.

During the Day of Outreach activities, the students attending the conference will visit low-income neighborhoods throughout Atlanta to distribute more than 1,000 Holiday Boxes with enough food to feed a family of four. The Impact student teams will also visit the Destiny Rock of Escape, a juvenile detention center where the Conference students will share food and Bibles with incarcerated youth.

A key Day of Outreach site will be at the Lakewood Church of Christ where the homeless will receive a Chick-fil-A lunch, and a Homeless Care Kit which includes a blanket, hat, socks and an assortment of toiletries.

The Impact Movement develops students who are spiritually focused, financially responsible and morally fit. Since 1991 more than 14,000 students have participated in Impact’s biennial national conference – the largest gathering of African-American college students in the country.
