JOIN US FOR OUR

2020 Fall Fundraising Event



Our annual charity event has gone virtual! Help us reach our $400,000 goal by November 26th. This is an opportunity to give back after such an abundant year and to be thankful for the wonderful blessings we have in our lives.

100% of the donations made will go to two charities.


These charities are supporting children across Missouri (CarePortal) by staying out of the foster system and supporting children across the world (Feed My Starving Children) by providing nutritious meals that they are in desperate need of to survive.

Feed My Starving Children

You may remember that we did a “Go Feed” event last year. That food packing event was supported by Feed My Starving Children. We’re supporting this great organization again this year in an effort to provide over 800,000 meals for kids around the world.

Hunger is still causing nearly half of deaths in children under 5 years old. It’s estimated that at least 6,200 children die each day from causes related to undernutrition. That’s more than 2,000,000 a year. This is heartbreaking. Feed My Starving Children meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition. Nutrition allows children to grow, thrive and develop to their full potential.

6.2K Children die a day from malnutrition (pre-covid)

440M Meals requested for 2020

Created nutritious meal formulas to meet the need of starving people
Donations are used to fund the meal ingredients

Meals are donated to FMSC food partners around the world

Global Orphan Project

 

In every community, there are children and families at a point of crisis, who need help. In those same communities, there are churches and people who care and want to take action. But what they need is a connection point. That’s where CarePortal steps in and acts as a technology platform that connects vulnerable children and families to people who have something to give.  All requests submitted through CarePortal come from caseworkers at government child welfare agencies or other child-serving organizations. Every single time a caseworker submits a request on behalf of a child, they are trying to prevent a child from entering foster care or supporting a youth aging out of foster care.

 

NorthPoint is sponsoring the CarePortal rollout across all of Missouri. This will cost $200,000 and NorthPoint has committed to covering the cost to make sure this valuable tool can be used by caseworkers and communities to keep kids out of the foster care system.
