WHO: Dunwoody United Methodist Church
WHAT: Foodstock 2012: Hundreds of volunteers from Dunwoody United Methodist Church and the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs community will work together to assemble 150,000 dehydrated meals for children in need across the globe. This will be the largest effort of its kind in metro Atlanta for Stop Hunger Now. Volunteers will form large assembly lines for the work. Dehydrated meals ship quickly and have a 5-year shelf life. They’re made of rice, soybeans, vegetables and 21 essential vitamins. Stop Hunger Now primarily targets children thru school lunch programs but will also expand to the community it is serving based on need.
WHEN: Saturday, August 18
8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (more…)
Registration begins on September 1st
“Shop” for your fresh produce at the Sandy Springs Farmers Market Saturday mornings, July 21, August 4, 11 & 18 and Saturday, September 15, and bring canned goods and other non-perishable items to “Drop” at the CAC collection bin. Donations go to the CAC Food Pantry which receives 1000 visits a month from local families and individuals. Supplies are low at the CAC Food Pantry during the summer months so please help us keep the shelves stocked for neighbors in need. Most needed items include canned meats, peanut butter, canned vegetables, cereal and toilet paper. The Sandy Springs Farmers Market is open Saturdays, 8:30 am – 12 pm from April through October and is located at 235 Sandy Springs Circle NW.
As we come to this season, many times we will buy things for our loved ones via the internet or perhaps in a catalog. Maybe consider involving your entire family this year when you place your holiday season orders and order something for children in need around the world. “Gifts of Compassion” is just one example of how many charities make it easy for your entire family to reach out and help.
Also, when considering the quality of the charity, in addition to visiting the charity’s own website, don’t forget a great tool called Charity Navigator. It is an easy way to find out more about potential charities including their purpose, mission, financial health, quantity of donations used for programmatic purposes versus overhead, etc… Click here to go to Compassion International’s Summary on Charity Navigator’s website.
