On Friday, Feb 23rd starting at 4:30pm through the evening of Saturday, Feb 24th, ending at about 7:00pm, 8th grade and high school youth will unite together to bring awareness to our global and local famine crisis, by participating in a 30-hour famine. There is room for you, too!!
Youth throughout Whitewater will begin fasting on Friday, Feb 23rd at noon through 6:00pm Saturday, with a meal to follow. For 30 hours youth will be participating in a lock-in, sleeping in cardboard boxes and participating in community service events to help unite our community in battling against hunger.
Students will be in cardboard box houses on Saturday, Feb 24th from 9-11am in front of the Whitewater Walmart. They will be taking monetary donations and non-perishable food donations for the Whitewater Pantry.
What is it like to not have anything to eat or to live in a cardboard box?
This experience will give our local youth a taste of what so many deal with every single day. All donations appreciated!
This year, the event is hosted by St. Patrick Catholic Church, 1225 W. Main St. Whitewater, WI 53190. Questions? (262) 473-3143.
