Since 1944 Heifer has helped more than 18.5 millionfamilies in more than 125 countries move toward greater self-reliancethrough the gift of livestock and training in environmentally soundagriculture. We will be using mite boxes. Inspired by the widow inscripture who gives her last 2 mites to the offering at the temple. We haveour own mite boxes for us to put our spare change in during the 6 weekslent. Then bring your mite boxes in on Easter and we will combine all ofour change to purchase livestock for families in need across the globe.$60.00 buys 3 rabbits. $120.00 buys a pig or a sheep and $500.00 buys a cow.Let's save our spare change and together we can make a difference. We havemite boxes and family activity calendars available in the narthex.
