Feed My Starving Children Winona Packing Event 2012

On Saturday 16 volunteers from Cathedral took part in the Feed My Starving Children food packing event. The event was sponsored by the Winona Rotary Club and held at Riverside in Winona, and each group had a two-hour shift. The Cathedral group was there with seven other groups for the first shift (7:50 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.).The first shift exceeded the shift goal of 34,000 meals packed! The total amount of meals packed in the shift will feed 98 people one meal per day, every day, for one year.
We even exceeded our monetary goal of $800 per team! Not only did our parishioners give generously, but a group of girls from the Cotter High School sophomore class sold food before school and at various events to raise a total of $169.71 toward the cause. These efforts put us over our goal with a total of $889.71!
Thank you to everyone who put time and money into such a great cause, and to the Social Justice Committee for all of their work on the organizing side. We're excited to do it all over again next year!
