We just got word that those 20,000 meal kits we made back during Lent were combined with kits packed by other groups and sent to Dominican Republic for distribution by CitiHope International, an organization that nourishes lives through food assistance and other services. The shipping container held 278,640 meals.
Thank you all for your service. It was so great to see FUMC teens, kids, parents, and everyone else working together to help change the world. We will be set to do it again next winter!
