Twelve youth at Holy Trinity are getting ready again to participate in World Vision’s 30-hour famine over Easter weekend.

During that weekend, students will get up close and personal with hunger by going 30 hours without food.

World Vision provides activities to help make this a fun, educational and life-changing experience.

The youth at Holy Trinity will conduct a neighborhood food collection in place of Friday night’s dinner April 14 and will stock the Catasauqua Food Bank the next day.

Visit worldvision.org to learn more. If you would like to support Holy Trinity youth by making a donation or offering matching funds, call or text Diane Car, Holy Trinity’s youth leader, at 610-739-6006.
