Hens for Hunger Project! (2016)
A church project to benefit the ELCA World Hunger Program
In 2016, the ELCA requested every congregation to come up with a new way, in addition to what was being done, to raise funds to combat World Hunger. We at St. Abraham came up with "Hens for Hunger." We purchased day old chicks from a hatchery and hand raised them. The eggs were then sold (and eventually the hens) to the community. Over $400 was raised and all proceeds were donated to the ELCA World Hunger Project. We would like to thank Thrivent for supporting our project with seed money!
