One Human Family, Moved by the Spirit
Our parish goal was to raise $220,000 to buy and ship more than 240,000 pounds of food and critical supplies to those in need, as well as provide funds for education and sustainability projects.
With the grace of God, and through the extraordinary generosity of parishioners and friends of the parish, the Monsignor McSweeney World Hunger Drive raised over $251,000, making it one of the most successful drives in its 18-year history.
Based on projections, an estimated 360,00 pounds of food and supplies are expected to ship, bringing the 18 year total to over 3.5 million pounds of food and supplies shared with those in need. Currently, there are two containers with rice and beans on the way to Haiti with more planned to ship. Due to extreme food shortages in Haiti, we have sent emergency funds to our friends in Haiti so they can buy locally until our containers arrive.
We are incredibly grateful for each level of financial support from so many of our individuals and families. You opened your hearts and generously gave to support our family in Haiti. This will have tremendous impact on our Haitian brothers and sisters who are in the midst of the pandemic and much conflict in their area.
We are all truly one family, connected in Christ and moved by the Spirit. For additional information and regular updates, please continue to check back here. To volunteer in the planning of the World Hunger Drive, contact Steve Favory, 704-231-6309, or Debbie Kane, 704-578-8253.
