World Vision's 30 Hour Famine (Community Event)
Location: First Baptist Church, Elkins
This April 26-27, the youth of FBC, Elkins will be joining the efforts of hundreds of thousands of young people all over the nation who will set aside the usual “stuff” that fills their daily lives. Instead, they will do World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine by going without food, and getting a taste of what the world’s poorest children and families face every day. Prior to the event weekend, students raise funds with the knowledge that every $30 they raise can help feed and care for a child for a month. Groups are also encouraged to perform hands-on service projects during the weekend in order to make a difference in their own communities. As part of the Famine, local participants will be sleeping in cardboard boxes, having a car wash, doing yard work, and community projects to raise money to combat hunger. Funds raised by 30 Hour Famine participants help feed and care for children in communities in need around the globe through World Vision. A portion of the funds raised assist families in need in the United States. Famine funds contribute to World Vision’s response in areas where famine, conflict, and other crises make children vulnerable to hunger and preventable disease. Since 1992, 30 Hour Famine has raised close to $150 million, representing countless lives saved. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries, helping approximately 100 million people every year.

There will be informative displays for the public, showing of a documentary on human trafficking, and a non-profit organization based in Joplin called Rapha House will also be present to give information and allow people to make donations if they desire.
