Great charity that fights hunger by gleaning unharvested food from farmers. Please donate to this wonderful organization! :-)
Our church uses the Society of St. Andrew's materials for advent and for lent, plus we held a church-wide Bible school for two years, using their free curriculum. We follow their September Hunger Action Month calendar as well. SoSA has the right idea - don't let anything go to waste! I think this organization is one of the top non-profits in our country and hope they will be able to continue their work in the future. They are a valuable resource and in addition, use their resources wisely. I am proud to be a supporter of SoSA.
I found SoSA while looking for a Bible school curriculum. Our church is supporting this program for the first time this year and we're hoping our first whole church Bible school will be a success in September, 2014. The more research I do on SoSA, the more impressed I am! I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have joined hands with my denomination, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), just this summer. It seems my church was destined to use their curriculum for our Bible school and for us to support them financially with our offering box givings this fall. I'm hoping this will be the first of many times throughout the next years we can support their efforts at eliminating hunger.
The Society of St. Andrew has helped feed thousands of people who would otherwise go hungry. Time and time again SofSA reaches out to those in need. God bless the Society of St. Andrew.
love that SoSA helps with the basic needs of people....supplying food.
SoSA has been gleaning fields of fresh produce for many years to help feed the hungry. They utilize many volunteers from all over the Mid Atlantic. They provide more food to local Food Banks and other sources of distribution than any other organization that I know. They also provide devotional materials to anyone who wants to participate in prayer and spiritual time. They are a wonderful organization for feeding the less fortunate.
SoSA's results-based work have consistently and repeatedly earned my trust & admiration. This is faith in action, in all of the very best, most human and caring definitions of that phrase. Well managed and participation oriented, SoSA offers ordinary, busy people a simple, wholesome work experience opportunity within the context of doing good unto others: helping to feed them. What a great concept. Thanks, cheers and blessings to SoSA!
I appreciate SoSA as an organization that takes their mission to love people through and to Christ by meeting their physical needs. "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." ~ James 1:27
I use SoSA devotional materias each year for my church's spiritual growth. I have always received great feedback from the members because these devotions are so meaningful. Each time I volunteer at a potato drop, talk with SoSA staff, or highlight SoSA in my church; I have a positive experience with people who ae committed to helping in any way they can. I have complete confidence in the integrity of this ministry with thse who can help meet the needs of the hungry.
Society of St Andrew is a wonderful organization in that it takes food that would oherwise go to waste and uses this gleaned food to feed the hungry. I have helped on numerous potato drops, cabbage drop and gleaning for apples in the orchard. All of these events have been well organized and well attended. It's amazing to me to see how much food is wasted if not for Society of St. Andrew.
I began supporting The Society of St. Andrew when it was first established. I lived in Virginia at the time & had a representative come & share the mission with our church. We have been supporters since that time. They do a fantastic job in gleaning & helping feed the hungry of our county. Karen Coffman
