Six students to participate in annual 30 Hour Famine

Six young members of the Havre de Grace United Methodist Church will participate in the annual World Vision 30 Hour Famine on Oct. 30 and 31.

During the event, students seek monetary pledges and go without food for 30 hours. They also participate in activities that will help them better understand the lives of those in developing countries.

"It only takes $30 to feed and care for a hungry child for a month and $360 to feed a child for a whole year," Juliette Moore said. "When I do the 30 Hour Famine, I know I can make a difference and change the lives of children forever."

Anyone interested in participating in the 30 Hour Famine may call 410-409-8127.
