Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for our next meal-packing event in Jeppson Hall on Saturday, November 3. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and snacks, set-up and packing of meals will start at 9 a.m., and we will end with a pizza party for lunch.
Working with Concordia Lutheran Church, the meals this year will be shipped to Liberia. Our goal is to match the 20,000 meals that we packed in November 2017, which requires us to raise $5,000. Currently, $3,600 has been collected, and we sincerely thank all those who have contributed.
To support this worthy cause, place donations in collection plates, making certain that the envelope or check is clearly marked “Meal Packing”. Additionally, Treasurer Scott Baeder can accept donations via credit card.
Lastly, we need at least 60 volunteers to help with the packing of meals. Although most of the packing requires some standing, there will be tasks that can be performed while sitting, so everyone can participate.
The sign-up sheet is now available, so please let us know if you are available!
