The generous giving of our Metro D.C. Synod members has resulted in our total giving (as of July 1, 2014) to the ELCA Malaria Campaign at more than $328.000! That means that our per member giving is $9.92… The price of a mosquito net is $10.00.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could reach a $10.00 per member giving number by the end of this summer, while we’re thinking about mosquitoes?
We have a goal of 100% of our congregations participating in the ELCA Malaria Campaign, and at this time we are at about 65%. If your congregation has not been able to participate, please consider doing so now. Contact Dorothy Sorrell, Metro D.C. Synod Malaria Coordinator, at 703-591-2236 or djsorrell1verizon.net for ideas, supplies or invitation to speak with your congregation or group.
