2020 Umoja Project

Time: 12:00 am – 12:00 am

Each fall, Umoja Partnership raises the funds for their food security program. The food security program provides school lunch program for 3425 primary school children in Kenya, and grains for 100 child-headed households.  This year we are providing food support for entire families due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Virtual Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner
This annual event will be held online on November 15th at 5pm. (Open their event flyer here.) You can donate items for the online auction, purchase a ticket, or donate to the event.  Dr. Joe Mamlin will be the keynote speaker this year.

The purchase of one ticket will feed a child lunch for a year, feed a family this fall, and include the purchase of a face mask made from colorful fabric, and a chance in our drawing. There will be an online auction that will include Kenyan items, art work, and many more. See the Umoja website for details.

The #FoodForThought
This 2020 campaign kicks off on September 1 and concludes on October 16, World Food Day.  The goal of this peer to peer virtual fundraiser to $35,000. You may donate to the fundraiser or start your own fundraising campaign - set a goal and ask your family and friends for donations. Read more on the Umoja website.
