Monday, January 15th – 9:00am-12:00pm
A Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Event
First Presbyterian Church, Fifeld Hall
Join us on Monday, January 15th for an annual church-wide day of service. In keeping with the spirit of Dr. King’s life and teachings, we will gather together in Fifield Hall for “a day on, not a day off.” This year we are partnering with Rise Against Hunger, an international relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable.
Rise Against Hunger distributes meals to initiatives in developing countries that promote education, encourage children to attend school, improve students’ health and nutrition, address gender inequalities, stimulate economic growth and are part of the movement to end world hunger in our lifetime.
Through meal packaging events like ours, Rise Against Hunger reaches and engages thousands of people each year in the fight against hunger—including communities of faith, corporations, civic clubs and schools.
We hope you’ll plan to join us for our first ever Rise Against Hunger meal packing event, where together we will pack over 30,000 meals in just two hours. We’ll have food packing and other activities for all ages as well as childcare, and we will all share a meal together after the packing is finished. The event is free. Donations for packing supplies are greatly appreciated.
