More than 820 million people – that’s about 11 percent of people in our world today – are hungry. As members of the ELCA, we are called to respond. We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work.
Working with and through our congregations, in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Lutheran churches overseas and other partners, ELCA World Hunger is uniquely positioned to reach communities in need. From health clinics to microloans, water wells to animal husbandry, community meals to advocacy, your gifts to ELCA World Hunger make it possible for the ELCA to respond, supporting sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty.
Chapter III, item 13, from Other Resolutions of Ongoing Impact, Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod, ELCA states: “A special offering to benefit the ELCA’s World Hunger Appeal shall be received at the annual Synod Assembly.” Please click on the button below to make your contribution.
