HOW THE FUNDS OUR YOUTH GROUP RAISES ACTUALLY FIGHT HUNGER


Over more than six decades we’ve learned that the best way to fight hunger is to give families the tools they need to put food on their own tables year round. Our goal for children and families is food security. That means they can be confident about where their next meal is coming from — and that they get enough nutritious food to live an active, healthy life. Specifically, this means that the funds you donate help World Vision:


¨ Teach parents improved farming techniques.

¨ Equip families to grow healthier, more abundant

crops and livestock.

¨ Provide access to clean water for nutritious

harvests.

¨ Run malnutrition centers when there’s a food

crisis.

¨ Distribute emergency food supplies when

there’s a disaster.

Hi Friends!
We hope you all had an adventurous February! Our Souper Bowl of Caring Event,
unfortunately was cancelled due to weather, but our church family had our back. There were
tons of food donations and financial support which is awesome!!! All of the donations will go
to our local food pantry and out to the community. We are truly a family and team here at
CUMC!!!!
Thank you to Pastor Mark and others for coordinating the district youth event: Winter
Wonderland. I am sure a good time was had by all. Stay tuned for more district youth events
in the future. They are planning a youth retreat out at Shelter Island and other events so we
will keep you connected.
We are planning to hold our Annual 30 hour famine this year!!!! The date is still being
determined. Stay tuned for additional events in March leading up to the famine. This is always
a great event and one we look forward to.
