Our March Mission Focus is Heifer International.
They believe the collective power of economic development, food security and nutrition, and environmental sustainability can empower small-scale farmers on the path to living incomes. When those components are multiplied by the positive impacts of gender equality and social capital, communities achieve greater resilience and a sustainable reduction in hunger and poverty.
Caring for the earth is vital to ending hunger and poverty, whether it's through reforestation, organic gardening or adoption of fuels that reduce the ill effects to the environment. Help families care for their environment with your sustainable gift.
Since 1944 Heifer International has worked with people of all faiths to provide families around the world with training that enables them to become self-reliant. These gifts include livestock, fish, trees, seeds, improved cook stoves, efficient irrigation equipment, and much more. Through Heifer's traditions of "Passing on the Gift," these gifts are multiplied countless times over.
Here at Salem our goal is to raise $3,000 in donations. Whatever you can give will help bring hope and healing into thousands of communities. Check out the display in Fellowship Hall. If giving by text, the code is Heifer. Send to (855) 917-1810 with the dollar sign and amount (e.g. $25 Heifer).
