Super Bowl of Love:

Think about this:  How much do you spend each time you eat out?  $20? $30?

Think about this:  how much do you think it takes to feed a hungry child for the weekend?
Surprisingly, the answer is $2.50.  That's right.  Just $2.50 can provide a child in a food-insecure home with food for two breakfasts, two lunches, two suppers, and a couple snacks.
Here's a challenge for you:  from Super Bowl Sunday until Valentine's Day, will you skip a meal out, or your morning cappuccino and donate to feed a child for a month or more?
There are 53 students from Friendship Hill currently enrolled in the backpack program. We are currently funded entirely by donations.
For the next 3 weeks, there will be decorated Valentines Boxes at the United Methodist Churches in Point Marion and Gans and the First Baptist Church in Point Marion as well as Clar-Mac Sales.
Checks can also be mailed to the Point Marion Rotary at P.O. Box 157 Point Marion or the Point Marion Ministerial Association at 515 Morgantown Street Point Marion.

Did You Know???

February is known for the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day and President’s Day too; it is even known to be the American Heart Month. Did you know that there is another special day in February?

February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day. While no one is quite sure of its origin, one thing is clear and that is its purpose. Do as many random acts of kindness for as many different people as possible. Why not give it a try this year?

Let’s try to outdo each other!
