HELP MEET NEEDS IN UKRAINE


We have two partners in Ukraine: North Star Foundation and Operation Ukraine. Through these partnerships, we find out urgent needs Ukrainians have, and work to fill them through financial and in-kind donations that arrive at Midwest Mission. We need your help to continue providing tangible resources to Ukraine to make an intangible difference in their lives.

THREE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

GIVE

Help us raise $53,200 to fund the meals that will be packed. Each meal costs 34 cents. Fun and experiential activities are a great way to get other people involved. You can donate to this project here.

PROMOTE

All meals are going to Ukrainian refugees to meet basic needs in war-torn areas. We need your help to get the word out. This is an opportunity for those both in church and not involved in church to experience the joy that comes from service. Download and print this PDF to get the word out to your community.

SERVE

We need volunteers to pack Rice Meal Bags that will be going to Ukrainian refugees. This is a chance to put your faith into tangible action and be the hands and feet of Jesus in a practical way. You will learn more about partnering with Midwest Mission to do easy mission activities at your church. This is a great way to invigorate congregations and attract new people.


We have three serving opportunities

Tremont, IL, Springfield, IL, and Ankeny, IA.
