Missions Offering: Heifer International
Women on Mission and the Missions Committee is sponsoring a sponsoring a churchwide Heifer International mission project during December 2021:
We are partnering with Heifer International to provide an impoverished community with clean water. Heifer is a 75-year-old organization rated highly by Charity Navigator.
Our goal of $475.00 will enable us to give the gift of a water pump to supply clean water for an entire community and to send a girl to school. If we exceed our goal, we will supply a hive of honeybees and provide chicks for a family. All these gifts have education supplied by Heifer to the recipients to enable them to effectively use the gifts for the family or community to eventually be self-supporting. Giving to Heifer in honor of a loved one can be a great Christmas gift for those on your gift list who already have all they need!
Clean water is rare in many parts of the world where Heifer International works. Families wake well before dawn and travel long distances to haul water back home. This chore is typically left to the woman and young girls, which keeps them from going to school. Often the only water they can find is unsafe and unsanitary. Now Heifer International is changing all that by building solar-powered wells that bring life-sustaining water right to families’ own backyards.
That is just one way your Water For Life gift can help Heifer bring life-giving water to those in need. By spreading the gift of clean water through a gift of a solar-powered well, water kiosks, irrigation systems, or treadle pumps, your Heifer donation can help more families!
How do I give?
You may write a check and/or use one of your offering Special Gift envelopes noting “Heifer International” on the “for” line. You can mail or bring it by the church or give online, adding Heifer International in the memo line. The deadline for our campaign is December 29th. Heifer International partners with approximately 1,600 companies who match donations contributed to the organization. During the month of December, Heifer International will triple match our donation totals.
