Grace Community Church, a church for people who don’t go to church, is embarking on its 5th partnership with Stop Hunger Now, an international crisis relief organization, and inviting the Arlington community to come out and help stop hunger around the globe.

“With all the problems in the world today, this is an opportunity for us to be a part of the solution. We are going to impact the lives of 100,000 children in one day and we would love to have you join us. This is a fun, easy and meaningful way to make a difference?” – Pastor Derek Adye

There will be no church service on this day. Volunteers from Grace and the community will work together to meet the goal. Meals containing a combination of rice, soy, dried vegetables, and vitamins will be packaged on an assembly line and sealed into plastic pouches, then boxed and made ready to ship to those in need. There are plenty of jobs available for all ages and abilities. Childcare is available for those ages 3 and under. Ages 4 and up can work right alongside you. This is a great event to bring your whole family or a group of friends to.

Stop Hunger Now has delivered food to millions of hungry, vulnerable people and disaster victims in 65 countries around the world.

This event will take place at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center Gym (3501 S 2nd Street, Arlington, Va 22204) on Sunday, December 6 from 9:30am – Noon. Come at 9:30am or 11am and volunteer for just one hour to make a big impact.
