... to all who have helped Lincoln Kids Against Hunger complete the packaging of 500,000 meals for the Philippines. With the support of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and 1,882 volunteers who gave a total of 3,222 hours of time a total of 505,980 meals have now been packaged and shipped to the Philippines via the Orphan Grain Train. Thank you to all for your support both in donations and in time! We would not have been able to help so many families without each and every one of you.
As we celebrate...
...this milestone we must recognize the fact that others, locally and across the globe, still need our help. So many from all corners of the globe rely on the nourishment provided by Kids Against Hunger. Locally, food insecurity continues to challenge families struggling with financial hardship. In many countries children continue to live with or even die from the emotional and physical pain of starvation each and every day. Just try to imagine their desperation! We cannot forget them as we move into the second half of 2014.
Our work is far from over...
...so please consider scheduling a packaging session today. The children need your help! The need is great and we need YOU to help us fulfill our mission to significantly reduce hunger and starvation worldwide. Please call or email to schedule and event or to get more information. We are also in need of sponsors for packaging sessions. Your help in sponsoring a session allowing the participation of others such as schools or youth groups is greatly appreciated and needed.
Churches, youth groups, businesses, service clubs, schools, families, individuals, sports teams, neighborhoods, etc. – Please join us in our battle against hunger.
