Feed My Starving Children, along with about 20 area churches, is once again holding the South Metro Mobile Meal Packing Event. The 2020 event will take place the week of January 26 at Hosanna! Church, 9600 - 163rd St. W., Lakeville. 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 $480,000.00. 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.

There are 20 shifts over the six days of this Mobile Meal Packing Event. Also, there are set-up and clean-up shifts on Sunday afternoon and Saturday afternoon. 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 our organization name, "All Saints Catholic." Get started by clicking on "Individual Sign Up" above. Click on "Mobile Pack Events," then "select an upcoming event" for "South Metro Mobile Pack, Lakeville." Childcare reservations can be made when signing up.

2. JOIN AN ALL SAINTS GROUP: Would you like to serve at the Mobile Meal Packing Event with fellow All Saints people?
There are four "at large" groups that have already been created which you can join (listed below). You can also search for other groups that have been formed by fellow parishioners. Get started by clicking on "Join an All Saints Group" above. Search by our organization name: "All Saints Catholic."

Note to All Saints Faith Formation families: We are not reserving shifts on Wednesday evening this year so as to not conflict with the Made for More event at All Saints that evening. You are encouraged to attend "Made for More" and sign up for other meal packing shifts during the week.
 
All Saints Catholic School (Middle School) students and chaperones will serve at the Mobile Pack Event in conjunction with the celebration of Catholic Schools Week on Wednesday, January 29, 9:30 – 11:30am. These spots have been reserved, and sign up for this group is being handled through the School. 
 

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 $3,000.00 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 and Christmas Wish List sponsorships have been designated to the Mobile Meal Packing Event.

Thank you for your generosity!

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.
