In November, our Second Mile Giving Partner is ELCA World Hunger.
Eight hundred twenty-one million people throughout the world live in poverty and hunger every day. They struggle on less than $2 a day without enough food to eat or clean water to drink. Even in the USA, one in 10 households experiences hunger or the risk of hunger, skipping meals, or going an entire day without food.
ELCA World Hunger responds to global hunger and poverty by addressing its root causes. Through a comprehensive program of relief, development, education, and advocacy, people are connected to the resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Thanks to the ministry of ELCA World Hunger, families and communities who once knew hunger now give thanks for daily bread.
Our Social Ministry Team thanks the members and friends of All Saints Lutheran for their support of the Second Mile Giving Program, and asks for your continued support for our Ministry Partner in November, ELCA World Hunger.
