I have some extremely important news to share with you.

Through our ongoing meal box distribution program that has reached 18 locations and has provided over a quarter million meals, we recently became aware of an opportunity that could more than double the number of our distribution locations by the end of this month.

I can't share all the details with you right now as we are waiting final confirmation on the plans, but I am expecting this one opportunity will significantly expand our coronavirus crisis outreach. And we will be reaching particularly hard-hit areas where unemployment is high and resources are scarce.

Having served over 37,000 meals this week alone and facing the possibility of more than doubling our distribution sites very quickly, I'm asking every member of the Mercy Chefs team to stand with us right now!

Will you partner with Mercy Chefs THIS WEEKEND as we face a possible DOUBLING of our coronavirus crisis distribution locations? Your support will make this possible! Go here to make your tax-deductible gift help with this and other efforts:

We also added another major distribution site this past week -- in Las Vegas, a city some are calling "ground zero" for the coronavirus economic crisis where 3 in 10 workers are jobless and there are long lines of families needing food.

We are living through extraordinary times. I've never seen anything like this in my life. Every day, our Mercy Chefs teams wake up and do more than we thought possible. And every day, the phones keep ringing and the need keeps growing. Now, we are on the verge of a major ministry opportunity that could more than double our distribution sites.

Quite simply, I need help THIS WEEKEND as we prepare to provide tens of thousands of meals and possibly double our distribution sites.

Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration, and God bless.

P.S. I've included a few photos from our distribution site in Hawaii, where unemployment has hit very, very hard. We are still seeing incredible demand. Thanks to friends like you, Mercy Chefs is helping to meet this need. Please help as we prepare for what could be a major expansion of our efforts in the coming week.
