Today is GIVING TUESDAY, and this year we've set a goal of fully sponsoring up to 2,500 of the meals for disaster victims, children and needy families that we will be serving this Christmas season and in the coming weeks.

Each Christmas, Mercy Chefs serves thousands of holiday meals with all the fixings. Our Christmas-season outreaches this year kicked off this week with multiple events near our headquarters in Virginia, including an outreach to needy school children. Later this month, we'll be in Florida and Texas for special Christmas events before we head to the Bahamas for a week-long series of events reaching out to hurricane victims on Grand Bahama Island.

Will you help us meet our Giving Tuesday goal of fully funding 2,500 of our holiday meals? Simply click here or on the image below to help sponsor Christmas meals and continue other vital Mercy Chefs outreaches:

This is one of the most important seasons of the year for our mission -- especially for the thousands of children who will experience what may be their only Christmas dinner and Christmas party at a Mercy Chefs event.

Will you partner with us on GIVING TUESDAY to reach our goal of fully sponsoring 2,500 Christmas meals for disaster victims and needy families and children?

It costs about $5 to prepare and serve a full holiday dinner; $25 to feed a family of five. Your gift of $50 can help provide a full Christmas dinner to 10 folks; $100 feeds 20; $250 feeds 50.  If the Lord has blessed you this year in a special way, perhaps you would consider making a gift of $500 (100 meals), $1,000 (200 meals) or more.

Of course, every gift will help! Go here to make your tax-deductible gift.

Thank you so much, and God bless you!

God bless,

Gary LeBlanc
Founder & President, Mercy Chefs
