You can change world

To the Editor:

Mother Teresa once said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” It is often the smallest acts of kindness that make the greatest difference. Did you know that a single quarter will purchase an entire meal for a child in need?

Over the past few years, the Martin County area has worked together to pack hundreds of thousands of meals sent across the globe and across the state during our annual “Kids Against Hunger” food pack. This means that hundreds of people, each giving a small portion of their time and treasure, have joined together to change the lives of thousands of families in need.

Many hands make light the load and all ages are encouraged to join. Plan to be involved in helping feed God’s hungry children by organizing a team from your family, business or club to pack on Saturday, Feb. 15.

You can also attend the annual concert organized by our community’s youth for this effort on Wednesday, Jan. 15. To sign up your team or to keep watching for more information, check out our website at

If you have any questions or would like to donate toward this cause, contact Beth Reeve at (507) 235-5107.

Please send contributions payable to Kids Against Hunger to Beth Reeve, 918 Summit Dr., Fairmont, MN 56031.

Remember, your change can help change the world. We look forward to seeing you in the upcoming months.
