Bring your coins for the Alliance for Children Everywhere (ACE) Change 4 Children on Sunday, June 19.
Zambia has ten times the child mortality rate of the US, and hunger contributed to half of deaths of children under age five. In 2021, the Alliance for Children Everywhere protected 273 babies from hunger, with 99% of families reporting they ate two or more meals a day. By providing monthly supplies of emergency food relief, moms and caregivers had enough stability to focus on the future. 314 moms were able to grow their savings including 148 small business owners. Through our gifts, this program can continue to support the reduction of hunger in the Lusaka region.
Bring your change in zip-closed bags, remembering to bag any foreign coins separately. Check that the bag is free of paper clips, pins, batteries, buttons — anything that is not legal tender — as these clog the coin sorting machine.
Change 4 Children for ACE is collected quarterly at Derry Church. The next offering will be received on Sunday, Sept 18.
