Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church is a member of Bread for the World, which works to organize communities and individuals to speak up about hunger and poverty.
Advocacy is hard work, and sometimes the victories do not come right away. But Bread has been doing advocacy for decades and has the expertise, experience, and track record for bringing hope and opportunity to people in the U.S. and abroad.
The special offering for Bread is not in dollars. Instead members of SVPC participate in Bread’s Offering of Letters to Congress. For 2021, we are encouraged to ask our representatives to co-sponsor the Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act, as well as making the expansion of the Child Tax Credit permanent.
The Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act will invest in programs that promote community. Hundreds of millions of people overseas are on the brink of starvation, and these programs help people escape hunger.
Making the Child Tax Credit permanent would move millions of children out of poverty, help reduce hunger, and narrow the racial wealth gap exacerbated by unemployment as a result or COVID-19.
