FMSC MobilePack Is Back!
February 4-9, 2019
Feed My Starving Children, along with about two dozen area churches, is once again holding the South Metro Mobile Meal Packing Event. The 2019 event will take place the week of February 4-9 at Berean Baptist Church, 309 County Rd 42 E, Burnsville. All Saints is a sponsor church again this year. The overall goal for the event is to engage 10,000 people in packing 2 million meals and raising $500,000.00. This is a great opportunity to be of service to those most in need in our world. Don’t miss out on this corporal work of mercy - feeding the hungry.
How to get involved and support this project . . .

There are 19 shifts over the six days of this Mobile Meal Packing Event. Also, there are set-up and clean-up shifts on Sunday afternoon, Monday morning, and Saturday evening. You can sign up as an individual or create your own group with friends and family. Be sure to indicate that you are part of All Saints' community effort by listing your group under "All Saints Catholic Church Lakeville." Get started by clicking on "Individual Sign Up" above.

Childcare is available for Tuesday - Friday, 5-7pm or 6-8:30pm shifts and Saturday, 11am -1pm & 2-4pm. Childcare reservations can be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Join an All Saints Group: Would you like to serve at the Mobile Meal Packing Event with fellow All Saints people?

Get started by clicking on "Join an All Saints Group" above.
3. Donate to this Event: In addition to donations of time and service, FMSC needs financial support to cover the cost of the ingredients, packaging and shipping of these meals. All Saints' goal is to raise $2,900.00 from individual donations. In order to track donations toward the parish goal, please make your donation through the parish. The funds will be sent to FMSC at the end of the campaign. Donations can be made in a number of ways through the end of February.
By cash or check (written to "All Saints") via the parish office or the Sunday collection.
By on line giving via the parish website. Click on "Donate to this Event" above. Use the "Other Missions" line under "Special Collections."
In addition to individual donations, a parish tithe; proceeds from the 2018 All Saints Gala Cake Auction; and Christmas Wish List sponsorships have been designated to the Mobile Meal Packing Event.
Note: An appeal to donate financially is made at all of the shifts at the Mobile Pack event. Donations made at the event cannot be credited to an individual church's fund raising goal.
