Widow of Bishop Michael Carter in need of Van to keep school/church going

By Chinta Strausberg


Mrs. Gerri Carter, the widow of Bishop Michael Carter, is in need of immediate transportation. She has a small school and church and is in a financial bind due to the state of Illinois’ backlog in releasing her school funding.

Carter is doing her best to keep both the school, Reach Christian Academy, 7400 S. Michigan, a pre-school to high school facility, located in Ald. Roderick Sawyer’s (6th) Ward and Senator James T. Meek’s district, and the church up and running.

Her immediate need is to borrow a van to transport her students, family and herself from church to school including bible study.

Her state funding has been held up until around December 20, 2011.  That is when she is hoping and praying her state funds will come in so she can keep both the school and the church operating.

If you have a van she can use until her state funding comes in, please call her at: 773- 994 4640, or e-mail her at: reachchristianacademy@yahoo.com. Ultimately, Mrs. Carter wants to own her own van.
