“What’s Happening at Salem”
For the sixth time in 10 years Salem’s Youth Group will sponsor an event to make thousands of meals for starving children in Honduras. ‘Kids Against Hunger” is a nonprofit organization with a mission of feeding starving children around the world and reducing the number of hungry children in the US. On Saturday June 22nd the Youth Group will sponsor this church wide outreach project to make the food, package and date code it, then seal it in corrugated boxes. The event is from 9 a.m. to 1 pm in the Fellowship Hall with setup at 8 a.m. The goal is to make 10,800 meals. For more information please visit our Mission Outreach page or contact Jeff Kullmann.
