DIMES FOR HUNGER is one of the collaborative ministries of Providence Presbytery. Working TOGETHER since 1977,

WE have collected $1,537,019.12!

We continue to collect our dimes because Christ said to his disciples long ago,

“You give them something to eat!” Mark 6:37

 

Since 1986 we have a record of Dimes for Hunger contributions by churches. 14 of our churches have participated EVERY year since 1986.

Cornwell Presbyterian Church has participated EVERY year and met the goal of $9.30 per member EVERY year since 1990!

 

In 2014, 27 churches met the goal of $9.30 per member.*

Since 1986, 36 churches have met the goal at least one time.

 

In 2014, 28 churches increased their giving over 2013.
