Our Mercy Chefs team is in Puerto Rico TODAY and this weekend providing holiday meals, groceries and Christmas gifts for kids as we continue to reach out during the holidays to those who have been hit hard this year.

Our holiday outreaches this year have taken us to Fort Myers (FL), Ukraine, Honduras, and now Puerto Rico -- in addition to our community centers that are reaching families here at home.

Will you help Mercy Chefs as we continue these holiday efforts and expand our GLOBAL reachGo here to make your tax-deductible gift (doubled by a Year-End Matching Challenge), and see below for more details.

So much is happening right now...

As you know, I recently returned from Ukraine, where we brought hope for this holiday season to families and orphans deep inside that war-torn country. 

This week, our Mercy Chefs teams are in both Honduras and Puerto Rico, providing holiday meals, groceries, clothing and Christmas gifts for children. In addition, our community kitchens here at home are reaching out with holiday meals to those facing hardship.

This month alone, we'll provide about 10,000 meals, and for many, this will be the only holiday meal they receive. For these folks, Christmas dinner depends on Mercy Chefs and the generosity of friends like you!

And right now, your generosity will go even further...

+ + Your gift doubled in impact right now...

A dear friend of Mercy Chefs has offered a special $150,000 Year-End Matching Challenge gift to help us launch Mercy Chefs GLOBAL as we continue other efforts.

As a result, between now and the end of the year, every dollar you donate will be doubled in impact!

But that leaves me with a challenge...

We must match this $150,000 Year-End gift -- dollar for dollar – by the end of the year.

That leaves just a few weeks! That's why I'm asking you to prayerfully consider how the Lord is leading you to help....

Will you partner with me right now to bless hurting families this holiday season while we expand our efforts, knowing that your gift will be doubled by this special Year-End Matching Challenge? Go here:

This Matching Challenge gift is a great blessing. This year, the doors have opened wide for Mercy Chefs to help feed the nations while we continue to expand our domestic outreaches. As a result, this year alone, Mercy Chefs has delivered more than FOUR MILLION POUNDS of food overseas while at the same time we conducted our largest domestic disaster response in our history!

Will you help me feed thousands this month as we expand to feed even more people in 2023?

Thanks in advance or your prayerful consideration.

May God bless you richly,

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs

P.S. As I noted, we must fully match the $150,000 challenge gift by the end of year. I'm hoping to reach one-third of the challenge goal by this weekend. Will you help? Go here to make your gift to Mercy Chefs, doubled by this special Year-End Challenge:
