This yearly fundraiser is organized by members of our congregation with the purpose of raising money for an important cause. Some of these causes have included: the Lutheran Church in Guatemala, ELCA World Hunger, and Young Adults in Global Mission through the ELCA. This year's plant sale will be: May 20 from 10 am to 4 pm, and May 21 from 10:30 am to noon. All proceeds will be given to the ELCA's Good Gifts water program. With the installation of a water well, or spring box, as many as 500 families gain access to clean, safe water. When a community gains access to clean water, everything changes. Women and children don't spend hours gathering water. Communities are healthier. People can work, farm and go to school. And together, they build stronger economies and a future filled with hope. A gift of $2500 will fund the construction of a simple water well in a village that currently does not have one.
You can download an order form here. They are due by Wednesday, May 3rd.
We hope you will come and support this important cause, while getting great plants for your spring gardening!
