End 68 Hours of Hunger: October Update

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church has a team that packs food for the program 'End 68 Hours of Hunger' for the city of Portsmouth!! This program is designed to provide food for children in need that would sustain them for the weekend when school is not in session.This year Kathy McKenna and Lauren Gianino are the Team Coordinators for our church.

Our team is responsible for packing food bags for children on 7 Thursdays throughout the school year. We pack at the First United Methodist Church, 129 Miller Ave. Portsmouth and we meet at 6pm. Depending on the number of volunteers, the packing process takes between 40 minutes to an hour - but rarely a full hour.

Our first packing date is this Thursday, October 11th. The dates our team is responsible for are:

  • Thursday, October 11th
  • Thursday, November 15th
  • Thursday, January 3rd
  • Thursday, February 7th
  • Wednesday, March 20th
  • Thursday, May 9th
  • Thursday, June 13th
