Bread For The World

2011 Detroit Metro Council Offering of Letters Workshop

Metro Detroit 2011 Offering Of Letters Workshop
Saturday, March 5
9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Royal Oak, Michigan


As change happens on the political scene in Washington, DC, one constant is our need to speak out for hungry people here and around the world.

Bread for the World’s 2011 Offering of Letters campaign is well chosen, with bipartisan appeal and momentum already building. This year we will urge Congress to make our nation’s foreign assistance programs better focused on reducing hunger and poverty. More effective assistance translates into more progress for the world's nearly 1 billion chronically hungry people.  See more about the campaign at www.bread.org/ol.

Many issues are competing for congressional attention this year, so the letters our churches and campuses write will make a big difference in helping foreign aid reform move forward. The administration and Congress have started the process with Bread’s encouragement; this year we can help make it happen!

Every member of Congress will be essential to bring about more effective foreign assistance. So come to the Detroit Offering of Letters workshop in Holland. The details are below.

Through multimedia presentations and interactive exercises at the workshop, you will learn how reforming foreign aid can improve the lives of millions of hungry people. 

You’ll go home prepared to share the Offering of Letters in your church, campus, and/or community so you can be a part of the solution! We hope to see you there.

Date: Saturday, March 5, 2011
Time: 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.


Snacks will be on hand - plan to bring a friend for a great way to begin the weekend!

Blessings,

Larry, Sarah, and Rick on the Dayton Bread team
