Back in December of 2012, our pastor gave us tubes of holiday M&Ms. Those tubes, she pointed out, are exactly the right size for storing quarters. She suggested we save our quarters in those tubes and donate them to Kids Against Hunger, which our church was going to help out in February.
In early 2013, we collected our donations and joined a bunch of other people in Harrison County. For ninety minutes, we packed food, ending up with 52,074 meals specially formulated for undernourished kids. Here is a report — with pictures.
I kept my tubes and bought some more and kept collecting my quarters. We’ll be participating again this year, and here’s my stash.
How many quarters in that picture? Those are stacks of four.
I’m really looking forward to the event. It was SO MUCH FUN!
See if there’s an event where you are at the Kids Against Hunger website.
