Local Youth Group Helping Worldwide.

World Vision's 30 Hour Famine

A local group, "Our race to end hunger" are coming together to fight hunger and save lives.

Nearly 8,000 children die each day due to hunger. Another child dies every 10 seconds.

-Wars and natural disasters dominate the world's daily headlines, but behind the scenes and far from the spotlight, HUNGER and preventable diseases claim the lives of 24,000 of the world's children every day. More than 1 billion people go hungry every day.More than 6 billion people live on the planet.One in six will go hungry tonight.

On September 2, our group will be participating in the 30 hour famine. We aren't eating for 30 hours-to raise awareness and to give ourselves a better understanding of how it feels to be hungry.

Prior to this, we will be helping to raise money for World Vision's 30 Hour Famine-in which all proceeds go directly to this organization.

Saturday August 13th from 11:00am-2:00 p.m we will be holding a BAKE SALE at The Pizza Place in Clinton NY. (32 Chenango Ave)
You will be able to have a taste of what some children in third world countries eat as a means of survival. (Other bake sale items will be available)

Since we are helping worldwide, we would also like to help locally in our community. We will have a used clothing/food bank drop off at this location as well. All clothing and food items will be donated to the Thea Bowman House where they will be handed out, free of charge, to people in need.

Please come support our cause!
