One Human Family, Moved by the Spirit
Welcome to the 18th Annual World Hunger Drive
COVID-19 has greatly changed our world, and all of us find ourselves adjusting to a “New Normal.” This year, the World Hunger Drive has had to find a “New Normal” too.
So . . . What does that mean?
Due to health and safety concerns caused by the pandemic, most of the “hands on” activities of the World Hunger Drive will be suspended for this year.
· No coupon trees in the narthex
· No dropping off donated food and supplies at the church
· No Meal Packing Event
· No Hoops-For-Hunger Basketball Tournament
· No fall Haiti mission trip
The material and spiritual needs are greater than ever for our brothers and sisters in Cap Haiten, Haiti, and the students at St. Marc Tremesse School. They, too, have been affected by the pandemic. With wide-spread famine a very real and growing threat, our family in Haiti needs our help more than ever. So, to provide that help – we’ve gone Virtual with an online World Hunger Drive.
Our goal is to fill and ship 6 containers with approximately 240,000 pounds of food and needed goods. To do this, we need to raise $220,000 in monetary donations that will be used to support bulk purchasing and to provide critical services.
Here’s how you and your family can help. Donating to the 2020 World Hunger Drive is easier than ever. To select a coupon and make a monetary donation click on the button below. You can select from Food, Bulk Rice and Beans, Education, Agricultural Sustainability, or General Donation to be used by the World Hunger Drive team to purchase items not fulfilled by other donations.
Simply click on your selected coupon and follow the steps to make your donation via Faith Direct.
You can also mail your donation to the church, or checks and credit card donations will gratefully be accepted at the World Hunger Drive tables after Mass on September 12/13, 19/20, 26/27, and October 3/4.
In addition, baskets will be located in the Narthex for the collection of check and cash donations. Checks should be made payable to St. Matthew Catholic Church. Please notate in the memo section “World Hunger Drive” and where you’d like your donation applied (Food, Rice and Beans, Education, Sustainability or General Donation).
We are one human family, moved by the Spirit. St. Matthew parishioners have already helped to contribute $250,000 for local families in need, now, let’s take care of our family in Haiti.
Thank you for your gift of love to help the poorest of the poor.
