One Person’s Trash, Another’s Fundraising Opportunity
Trinity UMC in Racine, Wisconsin holds a yearly Pringle Can Super Bowl Fundraiser, and this year's collected donations are going to Imagine No Malaria.
Lay member Paula Thorson said, "We are encouraging everyone in our congregation to take a can of Pringles chips home to enjoy while they watch the Super Bowl on February 2 and use the can for a bank to put their loose change in. The cans are to be returned on Mother’s Day. We hope to surpass our goal we have set." Thorson added that this is not the only way the church has participated in INM. "We had a picnic with a variation of the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' last August, along with Pastor Jeanne Jones’ challenge to all churches last June to match our immediate donation of $500 during Annual Conference."
Best wishes to Trinity UMC in their fundraiser!
