To the editor:
As we look
back on the 34th Harvest of Talents for World Hunger, we are
absolutely filled with thanksgiving and are deeply humbled by the
continued support for hunger relief from our community, so ~ with
grateful hearts on behalf of hungry children around the world, we
give you a HUGE HARVEST THANK YOU!!!!!
Thank you for sharing a measure of your time, talents, prayers,
encouragement, and resources for the various Harvest projects and
events throughout this year and especially on Harvest Day (always
the fourth Saturday of October) when Lincoln’s Mayor opened the
doors and hundreds of friends, neighbors, and family, from Alaska to

As Pat Snyder, Harvest Founder, says, "As long as there are hungry
people, the Harvest has a mission!”
Thank you Lincoln, Logan County, and central Illinois ~ Together, we
can make hope happen and be found faithful to Matthew 25:35, “For I
was hungry, and you fed me.”
The 35th Harvest has now begun!
Don’t grow weary of doing good ~ you’re so good at it! X O
Chairperson, Harvest Ministry Team
