Join the movement to end hunger in our lifetime! Help us reach our goal to package 10,152+ meals on Saturday, November 4. Working together we can create a world without hunger. The Soapstone Mission Committee invites you to work with us as we focus on poverty, homelessness and hunger.
Soapstone UMC is partnering with Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) for the 11th time. Through the years, we have packaged 81,590 total meals. At just $.29 per meal, 80% of Rise Against Hunger meals are distributed through transformational programs like school feeding, orphanages, health clinics and vocational training. There’s also a large, growing focus on the health, education and empowerment of Women as a key driver for ending extreme poverty and hunger.
Matching Donation Allows for More Meals to be Packaged — Rise Against Hunger has received a matching donation which will allow us to package more meals on Saturday, November 4, from 10:00 – Noon. For just $750 more we can package an additional 5000 meals. Can you sponsor a box (216 meals) for $62.50? For every box we sponsor, Kraft will match the funds so we can pack 2 boxes! Donations are being accepted through the morning of the event. For more information contact Gretchen Shea. One box has already been sponsored!!
Donations may be given online or with a check made payable to Soapstone UMC with “Rise Against Hunger” in the memo line.
