Stop Hunger Now

Saturday, November 22, 10 am until 12 pm

WE NEED YOU!  The Mission Team and Aldersgate will host a Stop Hunger Now event.  Stop Hunger Now has provided 159,400,849 packaged meals to 65 countries. The meals cost twenty-nine cents each and have a shelf-life of two years. We will need between 40 to 80 volunteers to work for two hours. Children as young as 4 years of age can come with their parents and help prepare the meals. Be sure and read the November Gatepost for details.
