Dimes for Hunger

Sept. 8  - Oct. 6. This is a Presbytery-sponsored program to raise money for hunger programs in Honduras, Guatemala, and in our 5-county presbytery. Unity’s fall program encourages individuals to give one dime per meal for one month. Members are needed to help with publicity within the church, attend the kick-off event in Rock Hill, and to be a part of this event.

Dimes for Hunger strives to meet the needs of the poor in our community and around the world. This annual Presbytery-Wide program often kicks off in the fall and continues through the spring as members of our churches generously deposit a dime into their Dimes for Hunger bank each time they eat a meal. With the needs in our community greater than at any other time since the Great Depression, the Presbyterian Churches of Chester, Kershaw, Lancaster, Union and York Counties stand ready to share what we are able.

For more information about Dimes for Hunger, please contact Nancy Nutter.

Crop Walk

This event, either a 6.2-mile walk or a 1-mile walk, will take place November 3 this year to raise money for hunger programs for Church World Service. Twenty-five percent of the money raised in York County stays in the county for ongoing programs. Unity has repeatedly had the highest number of walkers and raised more money than the other Crop Walk groups. It’s good for your soles, too!

A Coordinator is needed to plan for church participation – represent Unity at the Eastern York County Crop Walk meetings. Also needed are members to handle publicity for the walk and coordinate sign-ups for interested walkers and donors.

For more information about Crop Walk, please contact Nancy Nutter.
