Packaging Day 2018:

Saturday, Sept 22 the Mount Olive Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall was busy, busy, busy! Volunteers helped assembling, bagging, sealing and packing each of the 50,000 meals into boxes for shipping to Children of the Nations orphanages in Haiti, Dominican Republic, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Malawi, and other countries where the need is great

2018 is the tenth year of this annual event. (Feed 5000 did not package any meals in 2017.) In those 10 years we have packaged more than 500,000 meals. Your continued sacrifices of time, money, & energy help to continue this worthy project. God bless you all!
