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.
The SC Conference of the United Methodist Church is sponsoring a Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program at this year’s Annual Conference, June 9 at the Florence Civic Center.
The year’s goal is to raise $72,000 which equates to 285,000 meals (food, supplies, and mailing of packaged meals). Any money contributed beyond the $72,000 will be given to local hunger ministries through the SC Conference Board of Global Ministries.
Please help stop worldwide hunger:
Donate through your church
Make individual contributions
Donate through your civic organization
Volunteer to help with the meal packaging
Donate online at http://www.umcsc.org or make checks payable to and mail to: SC Conference Treasurer, PO Box 3787, Columbia, SC 29230. (Mark SC Hunger Project in the item line.)
