The popular contemporary Christian group Jars of Clay performed at Belmont University Wed., August 23, in the Curb Event Center as a part of a “Welcome Week” program at Belmont called “UNITE: Local Involvement…Global Perspective.” Proceeds from UNITE benefited Blood:Water Mission, an organization that addresses the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa.
Blood:Water Mission is a non-profit organization founded by the members of Jars of Clay to promote clean blood and clean water efforts in Africa. Blood:Water Mission builds clean water wells and supports medical facilities, tangibly reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.
“Our hope is to unite college students to get involved locally while gaining understanding of what is happening globally,” Matt Burchett, Coordinator of New Student Programs at Belmont, said. “It is a great opportunity for Belmont to reach out to the community.”
