September is National Hunger Action month. A copy of the Society of St. Andrew’s 2018 Calendar for Prayer and Action is in our Sunday bulletin or you can access it here: 2018 Prayer and Action Calendar (1). The calendar includes Scripture readings and related reflections or activities, suitable for the entire family, for each day of September. Missions would like to challenge the congregation to save 50 cents each time you go to the grocery store to donate to Pennies for Potatoes. Change saved can be deposited in the Pennies for Potatoes jugs located in Driscoll Hall, the breezeway, or sanctuary entrance by the choir.
The Society of St. Andrew shares healthy, nourishing food with hungry people right here in the USA by sending willing volunteers to glean (pick, dig, or gather) fresh fruits and vegetables from fields and orchards. Last year more than 41,000 volunteers worked with the Society of St. Andrew to put more than 85 million servings of food on the tables of those who need it most. As you use the Society of St. Andrew’s 2018 Calendar for Prayer and Action throughout September, National Hunger Action Month, you are making sure that good food is not wasted and that our hungry brothers and sisters are fed.
