Our Mission is to clothe people in need with warm "I Am Known" sweatshirts and provide bundles of essential hygiene products. We desire to enjoy rich conversation and share unforgettable stories in every encounter that would lead to a lasting relationship. We seek our neighbors in soup kitchens, shelters, subway stations, and other public spaces who may appear to be in need of warm clothing and supplies. When you buy Known apparel, your purchase supports this mission. Would you join us in supporting our mission by carrying the message that we are all known and loved by God?
The Known Campaign was birthed out of Bridge Church, winter 2014. It started off with a group of members who had a desire to meet the tangible needs of the city. As we thought about some of the most urgent needs of our city, we realized that many people in New York City feel forgotten, especially those who are on the margins of society. Mother Teresa said it best "We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty." We believe that reaching people who are on the margins is close to the heart of God. Therefore, over the last few years, we have been able to reach over 1100 neighbors across New York City with Known Hoodies and hygiene products to share the truth that they are Known by God.
Our goal is to remind anyone that may feel forgotten that we are all known and loved by God and by one another. We hope to be resourceful to those in need and invite anyone to join us in our vision.
