Dayspring Youth 2017
Welcome to Dayspring Student Ministry’s 30 Hour Famine Fundraising Page!
Imagine a group of teenagers not eating for 30 hours straight. Pretty crazy, right? Well, on April 28th and 29th, Dayspring Student Ministries is doing it on purpose, for a purpose—in order to help relieve hunger in our own community. And we need YOUR help!
What is 30 Hour Famine?
30 Hour Famine is an international youth movement where youth raise funds for hunger prevention while experiencing hunger firsthand. We go without food for 30 hours and use that time to learn about poverty, pray for those in need, and serve our homeless neighbors in East Texas—and have some fun! This year, all of our raised funds are going to Hunger For Love.
What is Hunger For Love?
In Smith County, an estimated 435 people are homeless at any given moment. As a youth group, we might not be able to build 435 houses or create 435 jobs, but we CAN make a difference! Hunger For Love is a local ministry that serves homeless and under-resourced families every Saturday morning. They provide a hot meal, a worship service, sack lunches, clothing and toiletries, and a loving community for anyone who needs it. On any given week, they feed and minister to between 100 and 180 men, women, and children under the Gentry Parkway bridge on Valentine St. in Tyler.
How Can You Help?
This year, our fundraising goal is $5,000—enough money to provide food for Tyler’s homeless population every Saturday morning for two entire months. All of that money comes from people like YOU, from our friends and family who want to help us make this a reality. Together we can make this happen!
This is our chance to make a difference, to put our faith into action and do something about hunger. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
