In 2007, God gave a West Virginia couple a vision that would help solve an important issue...feeding hungry kids.
Diana Wall, the president of Community Combined Ministries, said it began after she and her husband returned from El Salvadore. "When we returned back home, we were thinking that God was calling us to be missionaries and He was," said Wall. "So we started working with the Berkeley and Jefferson County school system. We serve 23 schools, feeding over 600 kids every weekend. We put together 'Kidz Power Pacs', bags of food, that will last the entire weekend, for children who would otherwise go without, on weekends, during breaks and throughout the summer," said Law.
With the increase of kids being served this year, the organization is in need of sponsors. "It runs us about $6,000 a month to feed these kids, and we would like to have sponsors. $20 a month will help, but I know how hard it is during these times, and if people can just give $5, that will go a long ways," Wall continues.
KPP is expecting approximately 650 children to be enrolled in the 2014 program. Sponsorships can be payable and mailed to Community Combined Ministries, P.O. Box 2805, Martinsburg, WV 25402.
