Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger

Hopewell United Methodist Church in Tyrone is hosting a “Rise Against Hunger” event on Saturday, September 21, 2019, to be held at Robert Burch Elementary School in Tyrone. Our goal is to raise $6829.92 to purchase 20,000 meals to be distributed worldwide to those most in need. That is only 34 cents per meal.

Rise Against Hunger’s goal is to end hunger by 2030. Various groups host meal packaging events in which volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed by Rise Against Hunger partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through their thorough monitoring and evaluation process, they ensure the meals distributed by their partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.

Our meal packing event will be a fun morning for the entire family and we invite you to partner with us and help support this vital ministry by donating a check/cash to help us reach our goal of $6829.92. Checks should be made payable to Hopewell United Methodist Church, earmarked “Rise Against Hunger”, and mailed or delivered by August 31, 2019. You can also donate on-line at: http://events.stophungernow.org/HopewellUMC2019.  Hopewell United Methodist is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Together, we can change lives!
