“For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’” Deuteronomy 15:11 lets us know that we will always have poverty in our world and that it is our job to reach out and help those in need.

That is exactly what took place on Friday and Saturday, April 19-20 when youth from Ranburne United Methodist Church and Wise Chapel United Methodist Church participated in the 30 Hour Famine.

Kevin Thomas, pastor of Ranburne United Methodist, describes this famine as “ an opportunity for youth to be homeless and hungry for a short period of time to get a small sample of how most people in the world live.”

Aside from raising more than $1,000 for world hunger, these youth collected over 800 food items for Helping Every Area Resident to Succeed- HEARTS of Cleburne County. This food came at a time when HEARTS food pantry was down to bare shelves and in just one day, these youth refilled the pantry.

HEARTS staff and volunteers want to say a big thank you to all who participated in the 30 Hour Famine project, and to all who gave so that those less fortunate would have.

On behalf of HEARTS, we are so grateful.
