On Saturday, October 14, 2017, New Bridge will partner with Rise Against Hunger in a meal packing mission. Rise Against Hunger is an organization whose sole purpose is to feed those living in poverty. Most meals are given away internationally but some are also used in disaster situations. We are planning on packing 40,000 meals in two hours with two hundred volunteers.
There are several ways you can help. We need you to pray. We want these meals to be a blessing to those receiving them. We want you to volunteer to help pack meals. Your whole family can be involved. You must be 7 years old and in second grade to help us pack meals. You MUST register your family for this event. No one can just walk in and participate. If you have a child under 7, we will provide care for them. You MUST register them with the church office. The link to register is http://events.stophungernow.org/NBBOct2017.
We need a total of 200 volunteers.
We are also accepting donations to pay for the cost of the meals we will pack. Each meal has a cost of $.29. We have contacted local businesses and asked for them to partner with us in this effort. We are raising $11,000 to fund this project. If you would like to donate, you can use the link posted above or send your donation to New Bridge Baptist with Rise Against Hunger in the memo. All donations are tax deductible.
We hope to see you at our packing event!
