30 Hour Famine

This weekend April 5th and 6th our students will be participating in World Visions 30 Hour Famine. I want to give you as much information in as little space as possible so pay attention :)

We are asking students to meet for breakfast with other students from their area.
Davenport students will meet for breakfast at Village Inn (5925 North Brady Street Davenport, IA) at 6:45am.
Moline/Rock Island/East Moline students will meet at Village Inn (2122 53rd Street Moline, IL 61265) at 6:45am.
Sherrard/Orion students will eat at home and pretend that you are at Village Inn OR come join us in Moline. (sorry)

Students will begin their fast at their lunch period. There is a sticker for students to wear and a informational booklet in their fundraising envelope with facts about world hunger that students can share with those around them that have questions as to why they are fasting.
