30 Hour Famine

1 Mar

The Education Partnership generally hosts volunteers every Saturday from 10- 2pm. This weekend, I had a surprise group of about 30 from a local church’s youth group.

They were one of the many student/youth groups all over the world who were fasting for 30 hours “in learning the truth about hunger, poverty, and injustice — then overcome it all with love.” http://www.30hourfamine.org/

Despite the fact that the volunteers were hungry, they were one of a couple volunteer groups that sorted over 8 pallets of school supplies in one visit.

The next 30 hour fast will take place April 27th – 28th. I plan on taking part in the event…I’m always learning about new causes/initiatives with each group I host!

I love my volunteers!
