Our primary activity is to purchase Kids Against Hunger rice meals, specially formulated protein meals, box them up with canned meat and ship them to the Missionaries of Charity and a Catholic parish priest in Venezuela. The rice meals are then cooked and handed out to people of all ages in need.
We communicate with the Missionaries of Charity Sisters and Father Angel to find out what supplies are most needed by the people they serve. We then purchase those supplies and ship them to each location.
We hold at least 3 major fundraisers a year including the Bunko Blizzard, Yard Sale Extravaganza and Party on the Patio in Highland, IL. We also have some friends in St. Louis, MO that occasionally hold fundraisers for us.
We are available to come speak to school children, organizations, or any other groups of people interested in hearing about the people we serve as well as our efforts to help them.
Through our newsletters, Facebook posts, and fundraisers, we encourage prayers for the people in Venezuela that we serve.
Each year we try to make Christmas special for the children served by the Missionaries of Charity in Venezuela by purchasing special items such as clothing, candy, small toys, and other treats then sending the supplies for the Sisters to hand out.
