How is it already November? I know I ask myself this question each year. As we move closer to Advent, I have a great opportunity for you, your family and even your friends. In this busy time of year, I hope you’ll find space in your schedule to take part.
Trinity Church is proud to take part in Rise Against Hunger. (That’s the new name for Stop Hunger Now.) This is a wonderful project that helps feed hungry people across the globe. Families are welcome to attend. (Children should be ages four and up.) It’s a good opportunity for multi-generational service. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that helps impoverished people throughout the world. They are committed to ending world hunger by 2030 by supplying meals as well as through sustainability efforts.
We are aiming to make 300,000 meals at our McLean event. It’s a lofty goal, for certain. We’ve done this before and I have no doubt we can do it again. At the end of the day, this will bring the total number of meals packaged by the McLean community to 2.5 million since 2010.
