This November at Serving Our Neighbors (SON) Ministries, as we Give Thanks, we would also like to again remember those less fortunate in our community. Of the 693,110 children in Ohio who struggle with hunger, 3,711 of these children are in Hilliard. And we are asking for your help.
We invite YOU – to make dining out SPECIAL again for you and your family while serving a good cause.
Do you know that an average family of four in our community might spend over $400 monthly on DINING OUT (restaurants, carry out, etc.)? Yet, families in our community are experiencing hunger daily? 1 in 4.5 children – 23.59% – in our community lives in poverty and may not know where their next meal is coming from.
This November we INVITE you to :
Dine-In for SON Ministries
Dine-In for Those in Need
Dine-In and Serve Your Neighbor
It works like this:
- Estimate what your family spends on dining out in ONE month.
- Talk with your family!
- Share the FACTS = there are people who are in need in our community, at your
– Ask your family to commit to Dining Out one less time this month (2 times? 3 times?
Forgo eating out completely?) and donate (re-direct) that money to SON
Ministries to Partner in the ongoing, relationship building work we do with families in
need in OUR community:
- $50 provides 10 children 30 minutes of tutoring in our KIDS CLUB Program! Education is the key to ending generational poverty and it is the goal of this program.
- $100 provides 34 healthy lunches for children in need in our Hilliard Free Summer Lunch CAMP.
Or during this Season of Thanksgiving, would you consider a special gift to make a lasting difference for a child living in poverty?
