Christ United Church Feeds 10,000
Members of Christ United Church joined up with Rise Against Hunger to package 10,000 meals in under 90 minutes. They were joined by individuals from across the southwest suburbs including members of other local Berea and Olmsted Falls churches. With about 70 people involved, their goal was accomplished in about 70 minutes. The group included all ages from 8 years old to over 80. The effort started over a year ago, when several members of Christ United participated in the same effort at John Knox Presbyterian Church in North Olmsted. The Mission Committee of Christ United Church decided it was a project that the church could readily handle. The Christ United Governing Board approved the funding of this effort with money from the George Short Memorial Fund and their Fifth Sunday offering.
