The Foster Galley

Servant_edited.png

Agape Ministries in the 1990s and early 2000s were the centerpiece of a ministry experience within the boundaries of the Eastside/Westside communities.  We’re excited about our past exploits, but it’s the present that we’re looking to capture.

Would you prayerfully, through your financial support, join us in a “new-wine” in

“new-wine-skins” approach to the age-old “dietary” problems that still plague the health of countless residents within peninsula Charleston.  The residents of our immediate community for years have suffered from Several health disparities e.g., heart disease, diabetes,

stroke—in relatively young African Americans. Other diseases e.g., High Blood Pressure (hypertension), Cancer, Peripheral Artery Disease, are now attributed to lifestyle choices.

And Sickle Cell Disease, which is inherited, but can now be treated through medicine and lifestyle choices.

We will “tackle” certain health issues, that are a struggle for people of African American descent and others through nutritional foods (preparation) and nutritional education.  

As we use the “Foster Galley”, a Department of Health and Environmental Controls (DHEC) “A” rated kitchen, to assist in the amelioration of these “serious health issues through nutritional”, counseling and health education.

Our leadership has agreed to honor Cadet Charles DeLesline Foster through a naming opportunity—the Charles DeLesline Foster Galley aka the Foster Galley. We also want to honor, Cadet Foster, who on September 6, 1966, became the 1St African American person to attend and in 1970 graduate from the Citadel as a Cadet.

With your generosity, we will dedicate the “Foster Galley” on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 4:00 pm, with present-day cadets and alumni (the class of 1970 in attendance).

Would you financially join our effort, with a $100 or $250 or $500 or $1000 one-time,

tax-deductible gift, to “restore the kitchen” to the restaurant quality it once experienced, that would allow this facility to serve for decades to come?  Our goal for the total renovation is $55,000.00 and a $25,000 annual scholarship for two (2) African American female graduates from Burke High School.

We plan to complete the renovation of the kitchen “The Foster Galley” by March 31, 2022,

in time for the Celebration of the 51st Anniversary of the graduation of Charles DeLesline Foster.  We will present a bronze plaque with a likeness and an inscription chosen by his family and bless, as well as dedicate our “Wall of Hope”, individually listing our contributors.
