Location: SIUC Newman Center, 715 South Washington Street, Carbondale, IL
We are trying to unite churches and businesses in the Southern Illinois area to come together to package a minimum of 43,000 meals for orphans in third world countries. We need 200 people to come together to package food. Cost: $54 a participant.Return to event list.
Anybody can be a participant at this event: any age, anyone who is willing to help scoop rice, soy, dried vegetables and seal them in a box. As your church or business is preparing the meals, we encourage them to pray over the boxes, talk about world hunger and consider hand-delivering these meals to one of our 9 participating countries worldwide. This mission-minded event will also be team building for your group.
Our goal is to make sure that every orphan receives at least one nutritious meal per day. We fund feeding programs in mostly poor third-world countries. We seek out those orphan care programs that have exhibited the ability and history to care effectively for the needs of orphans, yet struggle to provide the necessary food. From the orphan care providers, we require project financial accountability, monthly reports, updates on the condition of the orphans, and unlimited access to the project.
Our commitment to you is: To find and feed orphans that truly need help. Make sure that all donations are wisely and properly used. Carefully distribute every donation in accordance to the greatest need. Confirm that each orphan is cared for and loved.
