Unity Community Helps to Feed Starving Children

Recently, 6 Unity Church of Sun Lakes volunteers participated in a service project that will change the lives of 56 children worldwide. The group was part of a team that helped package 3,420 MannaPack Rice™ packages at the Mesa Feed My Starving Children packing center. That translates to 20,520 meals or enough to feed 56 children for an entire year. MannaPacks™ are food formulas consisting of excellent sources of protein, carbohydrates and key nutrients that are acceptable worldwide for anyone over the age of 1. And there are millions and millions of malnourished children throughout the globe.

The volunteers agreed it was amazing to have experienced the impact of helping to feed food-deprived children. “It was the most meaningful use of my time, ever,” said 1 volunteer. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) was founded in 1987 and has reached more than 70 countries through hundreds of food distribution partners. FMSC’s goal is to eliminate hunger at its roots. It is a completely volunteer organization that receives no funding from governmental sources. It is a Christian nonprofit organization. Unity Church of Sun Lakes plans to visit and volunteer often.

Unity Supports AZ Rangers in “Shop With A Cop” Program

At a recent event promoting the Ranger’s fundraising for underprivileged children, officers were pleased to receive a check from Unity Church of Sun Lakes in support of their “Shop With A Cop” program. “Our church supports local non-profits each month with a tithe (10%) of our gross income received from our members,” said Kate King-Turner as she presented the gift. “We saw a presentation at HOA2’s ladies’ coffee a couple of years ago and have been earmarking our November gifts ever since. It’s a very worthy cause.”

The Rangers have been involved in providing Christmas gifts for children for more than 20 years. “This year we are increasing the number of youths that we will shop with to 50. Last year one little boy teared up and said ‘this has been the best day of my life’ after shopping with us. It’s really touching,” said Captain Ron Burchett.
Unity Church of Sun Lakes meets in the Arts & Crafts room of the Sun Lakes Country Club every Sunday at 10 a.m. A non-denominational church, it welcomes all people to come and hear a message of positivity, light and love and is devoted to helping people find their own personal path to greater spirituality.
