It is because of questions like this one -- a question asked to Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) caregivers by a hungry, little girl -- that makes your support of the Food Roundup so important.
Before arriving at BCH’s statewide homes, many North Carolina children went without food, sometimes for days. Through the Food Roundup, your church provides them with approximately 700,000 meals and snacks -- enough for an entire year!
Help us care for more boys & girls! Like last year, BCH will open another cottage in 2017 to provide a home for more hurting children.
There’s still time to make a difference!
When your church helps us raise at least $350,000 in food, supplies and gift cards through the Food Roundup, not only will you feed NC children who have previously gone without meals, but they will see God’s love shining through you. With 80% of BCH’s residents coming to us unchurched and unreached for Jesus, your efforts are a witness to children who need to know Christ.
1. GET THE INFO! If you don’t have a list of needed items or know the best collection point to deliver your food items, contact Alan Williams at 1.800.476.3669 ext. 1277 or go to www.bchfoodroundup.org
2. RALLY YOUR CHURCH! Your leadership is vital! Promote during Sunday morning worship. Use a multimedia slide, short videos and ads at www.bchfoodroundup.org to spread the word. Use your Facebook page and email, too!
3. MAKE IT FUN! Which Sunday School class can collect the most food? Maybe boys and girls in your children’s ministry compete with one another. Everybody wins when you make a difference in the lives of children!
