EVEREST Holiday Gift Giving

Need a creative gift to give to someone who has everything they need?? How
about feeding starving children in their honor??

We are still short on our total fundraising for our Feed My Starving
Children mobile pack we hosted in November.
We packed over 110,000 meals, but still need to raise about $5000 to
complete our payment for the planned pack, PLUS our "overpack" of 10,00
additional meals.

If you are thinking about making a charitable donation to honor someone
during the holidays, please consider giving to the North Gwinnett FMCS
mobile pack.
Every 22 cents pays for a meal. $50 pays for a box of meals - 216 children
are fed. $80 feeds a child for a year. $220 pays for 1000 meals.

Thank you for your support of NGHS active student service projects.
