Feed your heart and spirit while you work to feed the hungry. We can accommodate nearly everyone at our food packs, from the young (about age 5) to the very old. There are opportunities for both standing and sitting jobs, and anyone who can dedicate themselves to about 90 minutes of easy work will excel at packaging these nutritionally complete meal packages. The jobs consist of pouring measured quantities of rice, beans, dehydrated vegetables, and vitamin powder into pre-labeled bags. The bags are weighed, sealed, and then placed in boxes. Each bag packed will provide 6 nutritional meals and each meal only costs 17 cents to make. However, we have a God sized goal of providing 100,000 meals for hungry children in El Salvador or another impoverished nation, so that means we need to raise $17,000! With God all things are possible and just as the widow gave her two mites, we are asking everyone to give what they can to make this goal a reality.
We will be able to pack a case (216 meals) or two for every volunteer we have (per shift that is worked). Dollar wise that comes out to $36.72 per case. For some, there will be no problem donating $50.00 or more, to cover the cost of the food that they will be packing but for others, thirty dollars is out of their range to donate. That is why we are not setting an amount per person to donate but are rather asking that everyone give something! Kids, can you give the money in your piggybanks or a dollar or two out of your allowance? Teens and senior citizens, can you give $10 or $20, maybe more? Perhaps you feel especially blessed and can give $1000 to provide nearly 6 thousand meals to hungry children. Whatever the amount you give, God can use it to bless hungry children. Donate online at www.peacelutheran.org or at the event!
So, please sign up to help at the pack and donate what you can and God will use our hands, feet and wallets so that this food pack can be a blessing to many, many hungry children! Together, with the help of God, we will provide 100,000 meals to feed hungry children! God’s Blessings to you! Thanks!!
