Hearts for Helping Others

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, a day that focuses around nice meals, flowers and candy.  For our food insecure neighbors in need, however, it’s just another day of making tough choices between paying rent or filling empty bellies.  This year, why not make your display of affection a gift that not only shows how much you care, but also a gift that gives back.

Make room in your Valentine’s Day budget, and your heart, for those in need. A $50 gift (cost of dining out for two) can provide 20 Gallons of Kerosene to a family in need.  The need is great but we know our friends like you have a Heart for Helping our neighbors.
Consider giving a donation in honor or memory of someone you love.  Burke United Christian Ministries would greatly appreciate your donation.  Let us know on your donation that it is for Valentine’s Day.
