That is the amount the congregation and friends of LUMC have donated to the Heifer Project. We have just completed “The Buzz.” This program brought in $1,323.00 with which we donated 44 Hives of Honeybees. Now, THAT is a lot of Buzz. Thank you to all who participated in this program in any way.
A new program started a week ago, the “Gift Ark.” We are going to load our ark two by two, until we reach our objective. When completed it will be loaded with 2 each of the following: Heifers, Oxen, Water Buffalo, Goats, Sheep, Pigs, Llamas, Trios of Rabbits, Trios of Ducks, Flocks of Chicks, Flocks of Geese, Trios of Guinea Pigs, Schools of Fish, and Hives of Honeybees. Also included will be a community animal Vet Kit.
Ark Banks and Donation Envelopes will be furnished. Visit the LUMM Display in Smoot Hall with your donation. The program will run until Nov. 1, 2019. The cost of the “Gift Ark” is $5,000.00.
Any excess will be used to donate more pairs of animals. When our “Gift Ark” docks it will give 28 families the chance they have been trained and waiting for, to lift them out of hunger and poverty. “Passing the Gift” will increase that number to 56 and using Heifer International average of 9 X the impact, means the potential of our Gift Ark will be 252 families. Changing Lives, An Animal at a Time.
