Bring us your pop- tabs

Thank you again to all who are continuing to bring pop tabs.  Harrisburg UMC received a thank you from Ronald McDonald House this week for another 30lbs of tabs.

To date we’ve given 313,000 tabs to the Ronald McDonald House (That’s 313 lbs)

Summer is upon us and that means more beverage cans at parties, picnics, and backyard events.  Keep those tabs coming and help support the Ronald McDonald House.

Rise Against Hunger

It is with great pleasure that we announce the destination of the Rise Against Hunger meals you helped package on 3/3/2018. A shipping container, holding 285,120 meals, has been sent to Dominican Republic for our partner CitiHope International. 

CitiHope International is an organization that nourishes lives through food assistance and other services in Dominican Republic.

Ending hunger is only possible if we continue to grow the movement. We encourage you to share the news about this shipment. Since 2005, volunteers like you have helped us distribute over 310 million meals worldwide. We can end hunger by 2030, but we can't do it without you.

Please visit our website www.riseagainsthunger.org and continue your involvement. Consider making a donation, planning another meal packaging event (at your place of worship, school, company, civic club, etc), joining our advocacy efforts, or even inviting us to speak to a group. Share your experience with us at charlotte@riseagainsthunger.org.

Keep up the great work and spread the word - #2030IsPossible. Gratefully, Richard Armenia, Program Manage.  Rise Against Hunger Charlotte, charlotte@riseagainsthunger.org
