Stop Hunger Now
Spring will bring our 5th annual Stop Hunger Now event at James Madison High School! Last year’s effort included 1,400 volunteers that packed 250,000 meals! Save the Date – April 18!
Read more information at the link below about how you can help. Four two-hour shifts are available throughout the day, and volunteers are needed for all shifts. Can't be there? You can help with a cash donation. The meals we pack cost only 25 cents per meal, but that adds up when we're hoping to pack over 250,000 meals!
Food security in impoverished regions of the world
Malnutrition and starvation
Community development/sustainability and self-empowerment in emerging societies
If so, you have an opportunity to hear from people who work on the front lines – from Nicaragua to the Central African Republic! We will have leading experts from Church World Service and Foods Resource Bank with us on Saturday morning, February 14 at 10:00 am. They will be able to discuss the vital field work that is going in developing nations. There is enough food in the world for all – we invite you to engage in the discussion on how to provide that food for the poorest of the poor. Read more.
Join us on Saturday, February 14, at VPC in the room off the Great Hall at 10 a.m. for coffee to hear more about the work of these two organizations. Mark your calendars and invite any other friends you may have who would like to come.
Also coming this spring is an opportunity to experience the Compassion International "Mobile Experience". Our community will have the opportunity to travel the world without leaving our property! Did you know that over a BILLION people live on less than $1.25 a day? The Compassion experience is an immersive, audio, visual and tactile journey that pulls back the curtain on global poverty and reveals the power of hope. You will definitely want to be part of this experience! See and read more about Compassion International "Mobile Experience" at www.compassion.com/change/about-the-experience-video.htm.
