The WoM are doing a mission project to feed the hungry people of the world. We are collecting $1 a month from each person who will give. The children should also be involved so they can learn the joy of giving. At the end of each month, the money will be counted and sent to the Southern Baptist Convention World Hunger Fund to be used immediately. 20% of the money stays in North America and 80% is sent overseas.
Because the SBC’s World Hunger Fund works through missionaries and other Southern Baptist representatives already on site, there are no administrative or promotional costs. Every dollar given is used to alleviate hunger, and those who share the food also share the Gospel message. Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger somewhere in the world, and 75% are children according to statistics compiled for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.
A collection box is on each foyer table.
