ONCE AGAIN IT IS TIME FOR THE HEIFER FUND DRIVE

Creating Change

For 75 years Heifer's cornerstones have empowered people to change their lives.  

https://www.heifer.org/about-heifer/index.html

This “not a cup, but a cow” thought was the driving force behind founder Dan West which led to Heifer International. Now, 75 years later, the “teach a man to fish” philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty once and for all and has transformed the lives of millions.

Participation is simple. If you haven’t already done so, pick up a coin box at Church and fill it with your spare change over the Lenten season. April 28th is the scheduled date to hand in your ark.
