SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, Nov. 11, when a group of volunteers will come together to package meals for the hungry. Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) is an international hunger relief non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food and other life-changing aid to people in developing nations.

Please consider making a donation, or several, over the summer. Checks may be made out to Palmyra First UMC with "Rise Against Hunger" on the memo line. We have set a goal of 15,120 meals ($4385) to be assembled that morning. Each meal costs $.29 and has a shelf life of 2 years and helps prevent starvation among some of the world's most vulnerable people.
