Join us on Sunday, July 10 for a meal packing event after the worship service. We will be packing 10,000 meals to be sent to Africa, Haiti, or Central America. Last year (2021) the meals we packaged went to Haiti.
Plan to be at the Fellowship Hall about 15 minutes after the end of the service, the event should last about 75 to 90 minutes. We will have jobs for folks that want to sit, want to stand, want to walk around, or are ready to pack the meals in cardboard boxes.
Sign ups are requested as limited space is available: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4FADA62BA3F4CE9-rise.
Information about Rise Against Hunger: (see the website https://www.riseagainsthunger.org/)
Our organization’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through our thorough monitoring and evaluation process, we ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.
There will be a free will offering, or if you want to contribute through Highland, mark your checks or donations Rise Against Hunger. These funds will be used to defray costs for the meal packing.
