Our Promise to Help

The Black Belt of Alabama


​How To Help:

"A Promise To Help" is a people helping people mission.  We ask that you join us by volunteering to do what you can do.  You may only be one person in this world, but one persons help can mean the world to someone else.  We are presently forming teams, with each team identifying a specific month during the year that they will be committed to serve.

Our Commitment:

"A Promise To Help" is a Virtual Corporation, a group of volunteers joining forces to produce a major victory, one of substance and power.  Our commitment is to ask for volunteer help; identify the skills and synchronize the efforts of the volunteers.  Identify the needs of the people and match the skilled volunteers to the areas of need.   


Our Need:

We are in need of: service for our Medical Mobile Clinic, Medications, Medical supplies, equipment, and resources needed for the volunteers to facilitate their efforts.  Share in the vision of God's Love by helping us provide medical and spiritual care. 



Your donations would afford us the opportunity to provide COVID-19 vaccines and health education, increase awareness and subsequently utilization of local healthcare resources, and eliminate barriers related to vaccinations, and lifestyle changes.
