Food For Hope: Help pack 70,000 meals in just 3 hours. We need you! Saturday, November 23 is this year’s Food packing event that benefits Hope Changes Everything.  The meals we pack will go to schools in Haiti to feed children devastated by the current upheaval in that nation.  Each meal costs just 0.23 cent.  So, for 70,000 meals the total cost will be $16,000. Please consider donating for the cost of this much needed food.  To donate, use the WPBC App, visit the church website, or write a check to WPBC Attn: Food for Hope.  Thanks for all of your support!
