The MNC Team will be traveling on a mission trip to Haiti June 23-28. If you are interested in going, send us a note and let us know. We will be completing several projects in Port Au Prince and in Kenscoff.
Over 80 people came together at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke in downtown Orlando on March 16th. It was the first time for most volunteers, but they quickly caught on and packed over 20,000 meals in two hours. NO CHILD HUNGRY is so grateful for all who participated. A special thank to the leadership provided by Canon Anne Taylor, Frank Drane, and Tom Bates.
These meals were packed just in time to be distributed locally for kids going on spring break. Over 5,000 meals were distributed the next week for students at two local schools and one local organization.
If you want to participate in the next event in May, contact William Lowry (321-436-7767) or Tom Bates (407-342-1126).

MNC Launches Good Samaritan School
In October, MNC started a new elementary school in Cazeau in the city of Port Au Prince. The school is located in a very poor community that is home to over 250 unschooled children. The Good Samaritan School will provide education to 125 students. The cost for a child to receive an education, a daily meal, and a uniform is only $100 per year. Click to HELP.
Donation Made In Memory of Bob Hudson and Orville Jones
This past year brought the loss of two dear friends who have loved and supported the MNC Team for several years. After living to be 100, Orville could look back at decades of leading mission trips all over the world and around the U.S. On more than half of those trips, you would find Bob, who lived to be 78, working by his side building hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, and homes in developing countries or poor areas within the United States.
Driven by compassionate hearts and a passion to make a difference, these men gave of their lives to impact the lives of others in a meaningful way.
MNC has graciously received a donation in their memory from their families to support the Good Samaritan School in Port Au Prince. Their work continues!

On Saturday April 20, My Neighbor's Children/No Child Hungry sent over 9000 meals, over 8,000 bars of soap, and 200 dresses to the children of Haiti in this truck. The truck was provided by Bill and Rene Plaza who work with The Clean Water Project.
The meals were provided through NO CHILD HINGRY, the soap was provided by Hand in Hand Soap, and the dresses (part of our "Ruby Dress Project) were provided by Heather Baker and Mary Jane Marshall and their sewing team in Fort Worth Texas.
Ruby Hutchins heard about our goal to provide 1200 dresses for girls in MNC facilities. She immediately became a part of the MNC Team and started the "Ruby Dress Project".
Going strong at 76 years old, she has already made over 100 dresses from pillow cases and miscellaneous material.
