Remember when we gave out the Lenten Self-Denial Piggybanks back in February to collect change in order to provide at least the $715 needed to provide for a Family Farm of animals, tools, and seeds through the Good Gifts Program of Lutheran World Hunger? Hopefully by now those piggies are so heavy with change that we will be able to purchase three Family Farms! The challenge has been how to collect them amidst a Stay-At-Home order by the governor that doesn’t put our donors at risk. Here is our plan; a DRIVE-BY STY COLLECTION!
On Sunday, June 7, we invite those with Lenten Self-Denial Piggybanks to drive-by the church between Noon and 2:00 to drop off your piggies in the World Hunger Sty we will erect in the Memorial Garden area. We will take the coin offerings to Republic Bank before the next Sunday to see just how many Family Farms we can provide. Last year we were able to purchase two and a few extra goats and hope we will be able to exceed that this year.
Thank you for your generosity during this time of being together as the body of Christ while apart. It will make a difference in the lives of those living in Third World countries more greatly than you can imagine.
