Churches United of the Quad City Area again will be participating in the Feinstein Foundation Hunger Challenge. The Feinstein Foundation will be donating one million participating proportionately to any hunger agency that participates between the challenge dates of March 1 through April 30th, 2013.
Last year, the greater Quad Cities as well as the faith community donated over $12,000 in this 60 day period. Our goal this year is to surpass that number and raise $13,000 in 60 days.
