The work of the Compassion, Peace and Justice ministries will be among those highlighted during #GivingTuesday, a 12-hour virtual celebration of the collective power of Presbyterian generosity.
CPJ ministries engage with Presbyterians and partners in the United States and across the globe to end poverty and hunger, restore communities impacted by disaster, promote peace and transform cultures of violence, and promote solidarity with Creation and people who are marginalized or discriminated against.
The event begins at 9:00 a.m. EDT and at 4:50 p.m. Jennifer Evans and Rebecca Barnes from the Presbyterian Hunger Program will welcome viewers to explore the impact that PHP — and gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing — have had on communities combating root causes of hunger and poverty. They will share photos, videos, infographics and stories to demonstrate the breadth of work that PHP does, as well as the resources it provides to Presbyterians and communities around the world.
“The Presbyterian Hunger Program has strong, authentic and trusted relationships with communities living with poverty and hunger in the U.S. and around the world,” said PHP Coordinator Rebecca Barnes. “So when you give to PHP you know that your donation is truly going to help alleviate suffering in a genuine way with real people we know and relate to. Your generosity creates important opportunities in dozens of communities for more and better food access, for solidarity campaigns with the issues they prioritize, and creates livable environments for all.”
