Support our ELCA World Hunger Daily Bread Matching Grant fundraiser!
"And taking the five loaves and the two fish, [Jesus] looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces" (Luke 9:16-17).
As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's (ELCA) response to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. John's is partnering with ELCA World Hunger to raise funds for our Annual Thanksgiving Meal through a Daily Bread Matching Grant.
We need your help to make sure we generate the maximum amount of support for our neighbors during this difficult time. ELCA World Hunger is kickstarting our fundraiser with a $500 grant. With your help, we can raise $500 or more to match the grant from ELCA World Hunger. Our goal is to raise $4000. We have until Sunday, November 22nd to meet our goal. Every gift truly makes a difference — thank you for your support!
About the 2020 Thanksgiving Meal
This year we are partnering with the Country Kitchen in Richland Center to provide Thanksgiving meals to those in need. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there will be no on site meals. However, we are providing delivery of meals which will be prepared by the Country Kitchen staff. St. John's is coordinating the fundraising and distribution of the meals, including sign-up for the meals and the delivery of the meals. Our goal is to provide at least 400 meals. Your cash donations to help us continue our annual Thanksgiving meal during this pandemic is greatly appreciated!
