Please join Feed My Starving Children and PVUMC for the 4th Annual Turn Hunger Into Hope Packing & Fundraising Event at the Phoenix Convention Center, July 29-31, 2016. During this event,5,000 volunteers will pack more than 1 million meals for hungry children. FMSC will also raise the funds needed to feed 6,250 children every day for an entire year, showing them God’s love in the process!
PVUMC has signed on as a Silver Sponsor, which means we have 25 guaranteed spots for volunteers, and have committed to donating $2,500 to FMSC. With your help, we can fill the volunteer spots, and raise the money we need to meet our commitment.
PVUMC will be there on Saturday, July 30, 3-5 pm.
Here’s how you can help:
Go to GIVE NOW on our website. Choose “Missions” and “FMSC” or “FMSC-MobilePack.” Each participant normally packs 216 manna packs during a 2-hour packing session. At 22 cents a pack, that’s about $50, our suggested donation for each participant. If that’s too much, please donate what you can. If you can’t pack, but still would like to donate, that would be great! We will also take checks payable to PVUMC, with FMSC MobilePack written on the memo line.
Thank you for your generosity. You are God’s love in action!

Packing meals is a joyful experience with FMSC! Don’t believe us? You need to check it out for yourself.
