Feed My Starving Children
From the Santiam Canyon’s hands to the world’s mouth
Regis and Stayton High School students are joining a community effort to pack meals for starving children all around the world, through an organization called Feed My Starving Children.
It takes just 22 cents to feed one child a meal. Cashing in 11 bottles or cans would feed 5 starving children a meal. St Mary’s, as well as other schools in the community, want to extend their support. We are asking each student to collect bottles and cans from their own neighborhood and cash them in. Money will need to be handed in to teachers no later than Friday, October 20th. Whichever class raises the most money will receive a pizza party. We appreciate your support.
“He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.” Psalm 146:7
The Community Mobile Pack will be at Stayton High School on November 4th & 5th 2017.
An additional pack on November 6th is reserved for Stayton High and Regis students.
The Green Sale is scheduled for December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. This fundraising event features handmade Christmas swags/wreaths, centerpieces, themed gift baskets, vendors and a Sunday fundraiser breakfast.
WANTED: CRAFTERS/VENDORS. Space is limited to 6 crafters/vendors; 4 spaces left. Each space is $50.00 for 9 feet wide by 8 feet deep space. Each reservation includes both Friday (December 1, 2017) and Saturday (December 2, 2017). Registration deadline is November 9th. Please see flyer/reservation form for details. If you have questions or need further information, contact Carmela Flett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
