Attend an Offering of Letters Workshop

Bread’s organizers are on the move, holding Offering of Letters workshops in every region of the country. These workshops equip you to organize an Offering of Letters and to share the goals of Bread’s 2011 campaign with your church, campus, or community.

Visit www.bread.org/go/Offering to learn more and see a schedule of upcoming workshops. 

It’s Membership Renewal Time! 

This is the time of year when we ask all Bread for the World members to renew their annual membership. Your renewed support is critical as we launch our 2011 Offering of Letters to reform U.S. foreign assistance. By sending in your renewal gift as quickly as possible, you save the cost and inconvenience of receiving additional renewal reminders.

This year, please consider renewing your membership online so your gift will go to work immediately. Visit our secure website at www.bread.org/renew to renew today.

Partner with Bread as a Covenant Church

In 2011, Covenant Churches that renew their status and support for Bread for the World will receive posters proclaiming their Covenant Church status.

As partners with Bread for the World in ending hunger, Covenant Churches make specific commitments: to pray and learn about hunger; to give of their time to end hunger in their community, the nation, and the world; and to give of their resources to end hunger.

Bread for the World offers resources and networking opportunities for Covenant Churches to strengthen their mission. For more information about becoming a Covenant Church, speak to your regional organizer or visit www.bread.org/go/covenant
