40 Days of Change for Change

During this Lenten season, your church can make a life-changing difference for an impoverished family. Through Food For The Poor’s giving challenge, it is within your church’s reach to help build a home with sanitation and a water component for a desperate family during the 40 days of Lent. Your congregation’s gift will be matched, up to $100,000, to help build a safe and sturdy two-bedroom home for a family in need.* With just a little spare change each day, your church can help provide a family in desperate need with safe shelter. But hurry, because this matching gift opportunity ends April 21.

A Food For The Poor home gives a poor family a place of security and comfort, with doors that lock. A new home not only means protection from wind and storms, but also new opportunities and a place for children to grow up in a safe environment. Giving during this Lenten season to help build a home for an impoverished family is another way your congregation can share the light of Christ by sharing their blessings with our poor brothers and sisters in the Caribbean and Latin America. Please help provide safe shelter for a poor family.

sheltering the oppressed and the homeless;
Clothing the naked when you see them,
and not turning your back on your own."
