LifeWay Christian Stores will feature Global Hunger Relief this month during its Fall Family Fun Day in stores across the nation.
LifeWay Stores will have special one-day offers for customers, along with snacks and a fun activity for kids Oct. 22. The first 25 families to arrive will also receive a special gift. To spotlight the mission of Global Hunger Relief, stores will also host a nation-wide canned food drive, and donations will be given to local food banks, ministries and missions.
“We are excited about our second annual Fall Family Fun Day, and even more, we are proud to partner with Global Hunger Relief,” said Nathan Magness, with LifeWay Christian Stores. “I believe we have a great opportunity to spotlight GHR and the incredible work and mission of this ministry partner. This event is just a great example of a growing partnership between LifeWay Stores and Global Hunger Relief. Together, we can raise awareness of a global hunger crisis and work to combat its effects while sharing the love of Jesus Christ.”
Global Hunger Relief is a cooperative Southern Baptist initiative that feeds hungry people around the world. Because of the Cooperative Program, 100 percent of donations go directly to meeting hunger needs, with nothing taken out for promotion or administration.
“We are so thankful that LifeWay Stores would provide this creative way for families to talk about these important topics with their children, serve their communities and have a fun day together,” said Jill Waggoner, lead brand strategist for GHR.
GHR partners include Baptist Global Response, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Executive Committee, the International Mission Board, LifeWay Christian Resources, the North American Mission Board and the Woman’s Missionary Union. Projects supported by GHR are implemented through the work and ministries of BGR, IMB and NAMB.
“Every project supported by GHR connects the physical needs with the spiritual needs for those in dire circumstances. You can know that your donations both serve the poor and are accompanied a Gospel witness,” said Waggoner.
