What exactly do we do?


Send rice meals

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.

Send additional supplies

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.

Hold fundraisers

We hold 2- 3 major fundraisers a year including the Bunko Blizzard  and Party on the Patio in Highland, IL.  We also have some friends in St. Louis, MO that occasionally hold fundraisers for us. 

Offer educational activities

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.

Encourage prayer support

Through our newsletters, Facebook posts, and fundraisers, we encourage prayers for the people in Venezuela that we serve.

Make Christmas special for the children

Each year we try to make Christmas special for the children served by the Missionaries of Charity and Father Angel in Venezuela by purchasing special items such as clothing, candy, small toys, and other treats then sending the supplies for them to hand out.
