Stop Hunger Now – All Church Mission Project (Sat, Mar 22)

WPC is teaming up with an international anti-hunger organization called Stop Hunger Now to pack and ship 10,000 meals in two hours.  The event will take place Sat, Mar 22nd, 10 am – noon and will be followed by lunch (noon-1 pm).

We are looking for 40-50 volunteers to help package the meals.  Children as young as 6 or 7 and adults of all ages can volunteer and make a meaningful contribution.  (If you have questions about your or your child’s ability to participate, please contact Pastor Rob rob@wallingfordpres.org or 610-566-1644 ext 13.)  This is a wonderful way for us to observe Lent and prepare for Easter as a church family by giving of our time so others can have a good meal to eat.

To find out more information about Stop Hunger Now, learn about the meals that we will be packaging, and learn about the packaging process (including videos from previous events), please go to: www.stophungernow.org

Our Mission and Service committee is paying the bulk of the cost for the event.  Participants are asked to bring $5 each to defer the cost of the supplies we’ll be packing.  Because we need so many volunteers, we are asking people to RSVP for the event.  You can RSVP on our church’s website, by calling the church office, or by signing up on Fellowship Hall.  Hope to see you there!
