Today the Latin/African American Chaplains Association (LACA) appealed to 2008 Presidential Candidate, and Humanitarian, Daniel Imperato, in order to save their organization from pending foreclosure of its corporate headquarters in New York City.
[USPRwire, Wed Mar 07 2007] LACA is appealing to 6,500 people worldwide to donate $10 each to stop the foreclosure of its corporate headquarters in the South Bronx. The organization needs $65,000 to stop the foreclosure .
Bishop Fernando Rodriguez, the organization's president, has now asked 2008 Presidential Candidate Daniel Imperato to aid in this humanitarian cause.
Bishop Rodriguez looks forward in working with Mr. Imperato with minorities and minority issues in NYC and inner cities throughout the USA "I urge the people of this country who believe in this organization and their efforts to lend a hand and support this organization. They were there for the people of New York during their time of need in 9/11; now it's their time of need," stated Imperato.
L.A.C.A originated amid the World Trade Center tragedy where their chaplains provided help to those coping with the traumatic events of 9/11. They continued their efforts by extending their reach and helping the families of those in American Airlines flight 587 fatal crash.
Imperato urged all people from the US and around the world to help support this organization.
On the prospect of working with Imperato, Bishop Rodriguez had the following to comment, "I look forward to working with Mr. Imperato with minorities and minority issues in NYC and inner cities throughout the USA--especially in NYC where the dropout rate is high. LACA wants to provide free tutoring to all kids to help them excel in the curriculum. Mr. Imperato has a big heart and cares for people and their issues. 'He has a great "grass roots approach' that makes a difference in helping organizations like LACA and people in the community."
Currently, L.A.C.A. has 3000 chaplains in their worldwide network, with over 1200 in New York City area. They work with the Police Department and Fire Departments, as well as with correctional and rehabilitation programs, to provide personal and spiritual support concerning, stress, anxiety, grief, depression and other life issues. Their newest
programs that they are looking to launch is an alternative sentencing plan with NYC and NY State Corrections, job placement for the unemployed, growing GED education out of our churches and chaplains locations.
