Donate Food

SPL Hunger Warriors also need donations of snacks, chips, Rice-Krispie Treats, granola bars, cookie bags, cracker bags…for Our Family Home Food program to assist young people and seniors in East Cleveland. We also need to meet the needs of toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, soup, macaroni & cheese for Dan Erwine’s 6 families with 18 people. Then we also have the pull-top cans of Spaghetti-O’s or other similar pull-top cans and Ramen Noodles that we send to Trials For Hope in Lakewood to distribute to the homeless and under-the-bridge people in need.

Mothers Day

As we honor Mothers this weekend, may we talk to God about How we can use our digital abilities to get more Hunger Warrior’s Walkers & Runners to sign up for the June 1, 2024 36th Annual Walk for Hunger and 5K Run at the Cleveland Metropolitan Zoo. We have 11 walkers/runners so far. Therefore, talk to your family, friends, students and find more people to assist Hunger Network with their 70+ programs to provide food for the summer months.

Splinter Groups From Advent Lutheran

The best news is that we have some splinter groups from Advent Lutheran in Cleveland, Trinity Lutheran Church in Willoughby, Redeemer’s Road Runners, and Team Braatz which provide 23 more team members and $555 more dollars. God is for us and wants us to keep asking others to support with monetary donations to our team and/or their own participation. Thank you for doing your best to provide essential foods for the summer through Hunger Network’s 70+ Programs and Meals.
