The Old Bridge Meal-pack is scheduled for Saturday, June 6. We may be a few months away from the event, but the effort is now underway. Our goal this year is to once again surpass 100,000 meals. Over, the last three years, we have provided almost 300,000 meals for children in Haiti. That is no small thing. And we could not have done it without you.
There are a couple of things we ask that you would do to help us make this event possible. The first is to pray! We believe that prayer is the primary reason for the success of this event. We know that feeding children is the work of God. And what a privilege it is that we get to participate together with God to do this. There are few things that any of us will do in life that will matter more than things like this.
The second thing we ask is that you would give. The reason that we can pack the meals that are packed is because of the generous donations of many individuals. It is a collective effort. We are joining in on doing something that not on of us could do alone. If you are a business owner or manager, we also have the opportunity available for business sponsorships where we promote your business during the event.
The third thing we ask is to volunteer. It takes a community of volunteers to pack all these meals. It a small commitment that makes a big difference. If you want to learn more about volunteering, check out this video that explains the event in more detail. One of the great things about this event is that anyone can volunteer. It doesn’t matter if your are 4, 40, or 94. There is a way for everyone to contribute. Volunteer registrations will be coming soon!
Finally, I want to extend an invitation to you to a fun fundraising event that is scheduled for this Friday, March 6. Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Old Bridge will be hosting a Videokey Night. All the funds raised for this event will go to support the Meal Packing effort. Even if you don’t want to sing a song, you can pay for someone else to sing a song. We would love for you to join us. Food will be available at 6:30pm and the videokey will begin at 7pm.
Once again, thank you for your tremendous support!
