Harvest of Talents
Harvest Of Talents is a ministry that is designed to raise money for world hunger relief.
We challenge people to take their talent, create something, and donate it to our cause. Every year, on the third Saturday in October, we have a big festival where these items are sold or auctioned. All of the funds (100%) raised through this project are used to feed hungry people around the world.
Regardless of what you make for Harvest of Talents, you are making a difference.
Since 2005, Harvest of Talents for World Hunger has raised $222,550.88 with no money going toward our church or administrative costs, only to starving people around the world.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to begin thinking about how you can join the fight to end world hunger. Then on October 15, 2016 join us as we put all of our talents together in one great effort to raise funds to feed the hungry around the world.
Do you can or bake? We could use your talent to help feed hungry people!
Do you sew or quilt? We can use your talent to feed hungry people!
Do you make jewelry? We can use your talent to feed hungry people!
Do you do woodworking or refinish furniture? We can use your talent to feed hungry people! The same goes for singers, landscapers, papercrafters, cooks, electricians, photographers, and artists and artisans of all kinds.
