Volunteers/Donations Still Needed
WOW! You have really stepped up this week in volunteering and donating to fill this request! Plus, we can feel the prayers surrounding this project. The big bell just rang out from Warehouse #1, signifying another completed pallet! That makes 26 of the 40 boxes needed. You have helped us make enough bags to feed 187,200 of the 288,000 goal! Amazing!

We have raised upwards of $26,000 of the $48,000 needed for the shipment. $1.00 pays for 1 bag which feeds 6 people. $40.00 fills a box and feeds 240 people. $1,200 sends a pallet that feeds 7,200 we need 40 pallets to fill this container.

We are making GREAT progress, but still need your help in order to fulfill the request from
North Star Foundation. So, we have opened additional shifts for next week, including Thursday evening hours. Packing is happening in our warehouse. Schedule Above.
