November is Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month, a time for us to reflect on what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and to work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger or homelessness.
The Mobile Loaves & Fishes’ (MLF) downtown Austin truck, based at FUMC, goes out nearly every day of the year to provide meals, clothing, and hygiene products to the homeless and working poor in our community. Last year, our Downtown truck provided over 26,000 hearty meals with the help of more than 350 dedicated volunteers. It will cost over $67,000 to fund this ministry for the next 365 days.
Please give generously as we try to make a difference for our friends living on the streets during 2017! You may leave gifts, marked “Mobile Loaves & Fishes,” at the communion rail or you may send them to or bring them by the church office.
