Join the Hunger Walk/Run, in person or vicariously!

This past Sunday, in conjunction with Rev. Makar’s sermon on poverty, UUCA Give-Away-the-Plate went to the Atlanta Community Food Bank

UUCA is involved with the food bank in several hands-on ways in the “Old Fourth Ward” community of downtown Atlanta. 

This coming Sunday, the 2014 Hunger Walk/Run takes place at Turner Field.  UUCA is not fielding a “team” this year, but you can participate in one of two ways….

1)    Walk or Run yourself!  .  As the Food Bank representative described it, it’s a carnival and run/walk at the same time.  Much fun for individuals and families.  Here’s the link:  https://secure2.convio.net/acfb/site/TRR/HungerWalkAtlantaCommunityFoodBank/HungerWalk/317783248?pg=ptype&fr_id=1600

2)    Support the Operation PEACE team with an online donation.  UUCA is very active with OPEACE and if you donate to that team, they, too, will get some food/financial benefits.  See below:  http://engage.acfb.org/site/TR?px=1285566&pg=personal&fr_id=1600&et=WxXjx3S6kYx3bo6sA8gejA&s_tafId=11020

The WORD From Operation Peace!

I can’t wait to get outdoors, get moving, and have fun, all for a great cause — to help raise much-needed funds for hunger relief in the Old Fourth Ward, and help Operation PEACE continue our work in the community.

I am asking you to help by making a donation. My goal is to raise $1,000 this year so that Operation PEACE can provide our children with healthy and nutritious meals, and make sure no child goes to bed hungry. The youth in our program, like more than 1 in 4 Georgia kids, live in homes where hunger is a regular worry. I want to change that, but I need your help, give today no donation is too small, and the Atlanta Food Bank will match all donations from the Hunger Walk.

It’s fast and easy to make a tax-deductible gift on my behalf. Just click on the link at the bottom of this message to go to my personal fundraising page.  Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Sincerely, Marcel Benoit, Program Director
