RISE AGAINST HUNGER
Several times each year Philadelphia volunteers will gather in the Kerr Building to help construct at least 12,000 meals to be sent overseas to needy families in poverty stricken countries. This mission is called RISE AGAINST HUNGER and our participation will help offset one of the biggest problems in the world today. We will need at least 80 volunteers to complete this project that should take about two hours from start to finish. Lunch for the volunteers will be provided. Your support of this mission will be deeply appreciated by those facing hunger on a daily basis.
10 CENTS A MEAL PROGRAM
On the second Sunday of each month, we collect a special offering that goes to the Charlotte Presbytery to distribute to local agencies that provide hunger relief. We ask individuals to donate 10 cents per meal to help fight hunger.
