Project Feed
Dear Church Family,

In just four years, East Ohio Youth have packed 250,000 meals for people in need!   In an assembly line fashion, urged on by happy music—and the occasional sounding of a gong - East Ohio Youth come together each year to help send nutritional meals to people in need in the United States and around the world.  Students from our church will be traveling to Wadsworth, Ohio on November 11 to pack meals again this year!

Participants are charged $10 to help offset the cost ($5 with a canned food donation for a local food bank). Because it costs $25 per person to pack the meals, the rest come from the Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM) budget.

This year, they’d like to add another meal packing date to the calendar.  Why?  To help Rise Against Hunger accomplish their goal of ending hunger by 2030.  They need financial help to make this happen.  A donation of any size helps!  Through September 23, we are collecting donations as a church.  Can we reach the Gold Sponsorship level?  Please make checks payable to BUMC, “Project Feed” in the memo line or on the envelope. 

Would you, your business or your employer* like to help?   Consider these sponsorship levels:

Bronze.  A $100 donation equals 345 meals! Sponsor will receive a certificate of recognition.

Silver. A $250 donation equals 862 meals! Sponsor will be recognized at the 2019 Youth Annual Conference (YAC).

Gold. A $500 donation equals 1,724 meals! Sponsor will be recognized at YAC and will receive VIP seating at the Saturday night concert at YAC.

All sponsors will have their name printed on the back of the Project Feed t-shirts.

Thank you!!

Dana Schwendeman, Director of Youth Ministries
