‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.’ The words of Our Lord call to us today, telling us not to turn away, indifferent, when we know our neighbor is hungry.” —Pope Francis
If you need even more incentive to make your way into Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families (WMOF), this is it! If you are attending or thinking about attending, you can help answer Pope Francis’ call to end global hunger by volunteering with CRS Helping Hands—the only service event at the WMOF.
The group will package 200,000 meals that to send to Burkina Faso in West Africa, along with sending funds to centers throughout Burkina Faso that support long-term development projects. Participants of all ages are welcome.
Helping Hands will have 7 shifts available from September 23 to 25 at the Philadelphia Convention Center. You can register for the free event here.
