This year, ELCA youth will join together for ELCA World Hunger’s Walk for Water. The goal is to raise $500,000 for ELCA World Hunger-supported water projects around the world. Through these gifts, communities will be equipped to provide wa-ter for drinking and growing crops, sanitation and hygiene, as well as ongoing health edu-cation, training and maintenance.
Our youth will be asking for your contri-bution to this cause. Our offering from Vacation Bible School will also be for Walk for Water. All money collected will be taken by our youth to the National Youth Gathering in Detroit this summer and added to offerings from around the country. Thanks to a generous family in the ELCA, all gifts toward this goal will be matched – dollar for dollar – until we hit a grand total of $1 million! Please give generously!
