Make a real difference this October! Five Oaks Church is partnering with FMSC, other Woodbury churches and organizations to pack 4 MILLION MEALS. Woodbury will feed the starving children of Haiti and Nicaragua along with the hungry locally. 10% of the money raised will be donated to our local Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf.
You can help in two different ways: The event goes from Thursday, October 8 through Sunday, October 11, but Five Oakers will come together to pack meals on Saturday, October 10 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. We have reserved 1,000 spots! Join our team at http://www.woodburyfeeds.org/. Click on the “Join a Group” and search for “Five Oaks Church” or enter our Group # 733128.
The second way you can help is to donate towards the costs of the meals. Each meal is 22 cents, but 4 million is a large number. Our MobilePack event needs to raise $880,000 to cover the costs of ingredients. Five Oaks has pledged $50,000 toward the event. To meet our commitment, we will have a Special Giving on the weekend of September 13. Per UNICEF, in 1990, 12 million children under the age of 5 died of starvation. Today, the number is closer to 6.3 million annually. It is still a huge problem, but together with FMSC we are saving lives, we are making a difference!
