Sharing Christ’s Love with Haiti
Would you be willing to spend two hours of your time to feed 150 hungry people? That and $37.50 is all it takes. The Meal Pack for Haiti takes place in Fellowship Hall on November 8 & 9. These nutritious meals cost only 25 cents each and will be sent to hungry families in Grand Goave, Haiti. Packing is easy! There is a job for everyone age 7 and older, even if you can’t stand up. A meal pack is a team effort with participants scooping dry food ingredients into bags which are then sealed. In less than two hours each person packs 150 meals. Each meal costs $.25 to pack, for a total contribution of $37.50. Forms are available if you want to ask folks to sponsor you. Registration is now open so please sign up as soon as possible for the time slot that works best for you.
Through Lifeline Christian Mission, ESUMC has discovered an opportunity where children (ages 7+), youth, college and career-age adults, parents, grandparents, and the elderly can work together on a common goal to benefit a hungry nation. ESUMC eagerly looks forward to collaborating with local Churches, organizations and businesses in our community to pack and send approximately 50,000 meals to the country of Haiti.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- We understand that participation may not be financially feasible for everyone but don’t let that sway your decision to get involved! To encourage full participation by individuals and families, we’re providing scholarships to any person or family who needs them. Please do not let the cost of the Meal Pack deter you from participating!
- Whether or not you attend the Meal Pack you can be a big help by making a donation! For checks, please be sure to designate your gift by writing on the Memo line: “Meal Pack for Haiti.” If you’re giving via cash, please also indicate “Meal Pack for Haiti” on the giving envelopes, located in the sanctuary pews. As each meal is approximately $0.25, collecting quarters is wonderful opportunity to engage and inspire children towards missions work! Furthermore, we highly encourage parents to set a “contribution goal” to work towards with their children. Finally, if you prefer to give electronically, please feel free to give via our GoFundMe page or you can always give via the giving tab on our website.
- Free childcare will be provided at the 8:30 AM Saturday morning time slot ONLY. Please call the church office to register for childcare.
