$1,005 Contributed to Mercy for the Starving

The Auxiliary matched member’s personal donations up to $500.  Members donated $505, thus far.  Our $1,005 donation will purchase 4,568 nutritious MannaPack™ meals.  The food funded by this donation provides a critical foundation for a child.  It is the first step toward a hope-filled life for them and their families.

Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children® is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals for starving, malnourished and hungry people. The prepackaged dry meals—costing less than a quarter each to make—are funded and assembled by donor-volunteers in the United States. FMSC food has reached more than 70 countries in their history.

We are still accepting donations.  Cash or checks made payable to Feed My Starving Children.  It is extremely important to include the Event Number MP 1903-014AU in the Memo section. If not included, St. Patrick Church does not get credit for the donation.  Donations can be dropped off at our next business meeting, Monday, February 4th, 7:00 PM at the Crane Road Church, St. Peter’s Room.

All money received goes directly to Feed My Starving Children.
