“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, ….”  Matthew 25:35   

How can you make a change for the better?  Volunteer!
 
Volunteering is a tradition in our country and is a rewarding experience!  Parents teach their children about helping others in need.  Schools teach students about volunteering by completing community service hours.  Businesses and organizations encourage their employees to volunteer and make a positive difference in their community.  Volunteers do good for others and their community, which provides them with a sense of accomplishment.  Volunteers are change makers!
 
April is Volunteer Month!  FHFH would like to honor our volunteer chapter coordinators.  Our chapter coordinators live in communities all across our country, come from all walks of life and have a heart for those who are hungry.
 
Serving as an FHFH chapter coordinators involves:

  • Partnering with at least one local butcher shop to process and package donated deer and livestock.
  • Identifying at least one local food bank or ministry to distribute the meat to the hungry.
  • Raising money to pay the meat processing bills through fundraising projects, events and appeals for support to individuals, businesses, churches, clubs and organizations in the community.
  • Promoting the ministry through local media, sporting goods stores, clubs and events to encourage hunter participation and connect with new donors and volunteers. 

We thank each of our chapter coordinators for their compassion, dedication and giving of their time to help feed the hungry in their communities and make a positive change in peoples lives.  We couldn’t fulfill our mission without our chapter coordinators!
