Lenten Mission 2015
Loaves and Fishes
Together, We Can Feed the Multitudes
This will be the third year that First Congregational Church has partnered with Outreach Kid’s Care, Inc. during Lent to feed the hungry in our own community.
Who: Joining us in the effort to fundraise and package food this year are:
First Congregational Church of Randolph
Quincy Point Congregational Church
Pilgrim Congregational Church
Boy Scout Troop and Pack 22
What: Our goal is to raise enough money to purchase food product to package 10,000 meals to be distributed to local food pantries. At $.25/meal, this is a fundraising goal of $2,500. These meals are substantial, hearty, and nutritious and will be distributed to Interfaith Social Services (ISS) food pantry in Quincy, The Marge Crispin Center in Braintree, the Randolph Food Pantry and the Weymouth Food Pantry.
When: Palm Sunday, March 29, 2015 @ 11:15 AM
Where: First Congregational Church of Braintree, UCC. Upper Parish Hall
How: To give you can place a check or cash in the Mission envelops found in the Sunday bulletin during Lent, or you may mail donations to:*
First Congregational Church
Loaves and Fishes Mission,
12 Elm Street, Braintree, MA 02184
* Checks can be made payable to First Congregational Church, memo: Loaves and Fishes. All donations are tax-deductible. Please note that all missions donations received between February 18th and March 29th will go toward our Loaves and Fishes Mission.
Instead of giving something up for Lent this year, let’s GIVE SOMETHING! Together we can feed the multitudes.
This is an intergenerational event and ALL are welcome and encouraged to participate!
