Pack Food for Stop Hunger Now – May 3, 2015
On Sunday, May 3, we will be packing 10,000 meals, for the third time, which will be shipped all over the world! This promises to be an exciting and wonderful afternoon as we prepare for God’s coming into the world, by trying to do our part to make the world a bit more like the world God wants it to be.
Please arrive at WPC by 4 pm. Meet in Fellowship Hall where there will be a brief presentation from a SHN representative who will talk about international hunger, and the role that events like ours play in eliminating hunger. Then, we’ll get down to work. We’ll be done packing by 6 pm and share a pizza dinner together. We should be finished with everything by 6:30 pm.
The total cost of the event is about $3,000 (which sounds like a lot, but breaks down to about 30 cents a meal – not too bad.) If you can bring $10 to help us defer some of the cost, that would be great. That money will go back into the Mission Budget and allow us to help more folks. If you can’t bring $10, PLEASE come anyway – we’d much rather have you than have your $10.
Additional opportunity to help:
Rob needs 4 or 5 people to help him and the SHN people set up the event ahead of time. You would need to arrive at 2:30 pm (instead of 4) and be able to lift 20-40 pounds. We’ll unload their truck, set up tables, and pre-set all the stations. That way, when the rest of the volunteers arrive at 4 pm, we can begin the project promptly. If you can help at 2:30 pm, please reply and let Pastor Rob and the Mission and Service Committee know.
