Santa Fe Christian Schools held its 4th Annual “Give Thanks, Give Back” school-wide service project Nov. 21, in conjunction with the Friends & Family Community Connection. SFC students raised money for all food supplies, including: rice, soy meal, dried vegetables and vitamin supplements. All attendees then packed meals to help fight hunger in Tanzania.
Many Tanzanian children live on the streets because AIDS and poverty-related diseases have killed a large portion of the adult population. SFC’s 200,000 meals will be distributed through the Children’s Community Center in partnership with the local Tanzanian government. The local government provides school uniforms, school fees and basic medical care for children at the Center. For many of these children, the Center provides their only meal of the day.
