Starving to Feed the Hungry

Dozens of teenagers took over the Wal-Mart parking lot in Liberty Township Friday night, freezing and starving to raise money for victims of hunger. The teens are going without food for thirty hours. This is a global effort called World Vision 30-hour Famine. About a million teens are holding similar events in 21 countries. According to World Vision, 29,000 children die every day because they don't have enough to eat, and it would take just 30-dollars a month to feed and care for a hungry child. Sitting - and starving - in the cold, these teenagers hope this short-term suffering will save lives. The local fundraiser was organized by Pastor Jim Benson with New Life Vineyard Church. If you'd like to get involved, call Pastor Benson at 513-737-9700. You can also find more information at the World Vision website: www.30hourfamine.org.
