Update: We hit our goal. We had 332 boxes donated, and more are coming!
One of the things we love about Connect Christian Church is that you never seem to miss an opportunity to step up and be generous.
Well, we’ve got another big challenge coming our way throughout the month of February.
Each Sunday from now until Feb. 22, we are collecting infant rice cereal to send to Haiti as part of an upcoming mission trip.
Our Connect Kids Director Tish Carwell (along with husband James and daughter Bri) are going to Haiti in March and will distribute what we collect as part of an infant nutrition program there.
Our goal is 300 boxes of infant rice cereal!
According to Lifeline Christian Mission (who the Carwells are partnering with) 70 percent of Haiti’s population is undernourished to some degree, with infants suffering the most. So we are asking for your help as we try to make a difference feeding some babies in Haiti.
Here’s the simple two-step plan:
- Stop by your local grocery or big-box store and pick up as few or as many boxes as you would like.
(One 8 oz box costs less than $2.)
- Bring the boxes with you and leave them at the Connect Center every Sunday through Feb. 22.
Let’s feed some babies Connect!
Contact Tish or James Carwell with any questions.
