The Youth Group of the Newtonville United Methodist Church, will be participating in a
"30 Hour Famine" on May 1-2, 2010.
This youth group and church are closely associated with five members of the Drew Theological community -
including two current and three former students.
30 Hour famine events, in association with World Vision, are designed to
raise awareness of and funds to help fight world hunger.
Recent estimates suggest that
25,000 children die each DAY
from hunger and related complications.
The youth will fast for two days
and during that period they will be doing activities in the community to help raise awareness of the impact of hunger and how we can all help to fight it.
Any support, including words of support on the facebook site,
$1 will feed a child for a day -
$30 for a month.
The cost of 2 medium sized pizzas and a bottle of soda from Dominos
will feed a starving child for 2 weeks!
Thank you for your support
