"We empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity-but our approach is about more than
giving them a handout. Heifer International links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income as agricultural products such as milk, eggs or honey can be traded or sold at market" (heifer.org).
The CVUMC and teh CV United Methodist Women are working again this year with Steve & Carol Johnson, missionaries working in Hyderabad, India and the surrounding areas. Each year we help purchase Christmas boxes for children in these impoverished regions. The boxes themselves are used by the children to store personal items. The supplies include a blanket, personal hygiene supplies and much more.
The Carson Valley United Methodist Church supports nonprofit organizations on a national and global front,
