Feed My Starving Children Project

GEC had a total of 50 people that helped…that is 100 hands…both big and little, all coming together to provide nourishment and hope to many hungry children around the world!

Those 100, big and little, GEC hands helped pack 135,432 meals, and those meals will feed 371 hungry children for one year!  What a difference we can make to others when we work together…”many hands make for light work”!
