Your help needed too

To the Editor:

Giving back to the community for people with disabilities can be challenging. Limited funds, limited mobility and limited staff support are all barriers that limit participation in community events.

Last year was the first year that Arc/People First worked a shift at the Kids Against Hunger Pack, taking place this year on Feb. 15 at the Fairmont Armory. Thanks to the leadership of Karla Ebert and Pat Kietzer, we provided two teams. The Kids Against Hunger committee members are fantastic and so well-organized. We were well-directed on each step we performed, it was an excellent experience.

Your help is needed as well. There are still openings for teams, especially on the afternoon shift, 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. If you cannot join us in person, please consider becoming a sponsor. Send your tax-deductible contributions payable to KIDS Against Hunger to Sue Homan, 921 Hengen St., Fairmont, MN 56031. Additional information can be obtained by calling Karen Sandhurst at (507) 848-1260 or emailing kahfairmontmn@gmail.com.

Make 2020 a year of working together to get things done, and feeding God’s hungry children will be a great start.
