Stop Hunger Now – 2015 Annual Conference Meal Packing Event

SHN-LogoTo: All Greenwood District Pastors

From: Rev. Steve Keck – Stop Hunger Now District Coordinator

Please keep Stop Hunger Now in your bulletins and speak of it weekly from the pulpit. This is a  good way for us to support our conference. A small amount of money can go a long way. If anyone has any great ways of raising money, please share it with the other Pastors in the district.

The other need for Stop Hunger Now is one person from each district to be in Florence on June 9 to help with coordinating the volunteers. We are also looking for youth groups to help with the packing of the food, so please let me know if you know anyone is taking his/her youth group to Florence to help with meal packing on June 9.
