URGENT: PACKING EVENT CANCELLED - Unfortunately, due to the hurricanes down south our rice supplier has received word that not all (7,000+lbs) of our rice would be available for this Saturday's packing event. Trucks were diverted to emergency supplies and rice harvesting has not taken place due to the immense flooding.
Our children will still be receiving the food as promised (70,000 meals) sent to them on time. Unfortunately, it will not be packed by the local community. An Orphan's Prayer was hopeful to get the local community involved and appreciate all the people who committed. We will keep you posted for any future events. God goes before us and these storms do not take him by surprise.
A very special Thank You to the 200+ people who signed-up....The following groups we want to give a shout-out to:
Parkview Christian Academy
Yorkville High School
Aurora Christian School
Brownie Troop 116 (Nicole Johnson)
Baseball Fury U-10boys (Manda Zappia)
Fox River Lutheran Church
Oswego Family Church
Yorkville Congregation Church (Barb Thurlby)
Yorkville Pom's Squad
Aurora Christian Girls (Diane McQuade)
***Thank you to our sponsors for the generous donations. Any funds donated toward the food will still be used to ensure the kids receive meals on time ****

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was ill and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
‘Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison and go to visit you?”
‘The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
