Father’s Day Bonus Gift – Get Three Chickens Free!

Father’s Day is almost here. Don’t have the perfect gift yet? No problem! We have you covered. Donate an emergency food kit to honor Dad, and we will include three egg-laying chickens as a bonus.

Yes, that’s right…when you purchase a COVID-19 Emergency Food Kit for a vulnerable family in Guatemala ($70), the Guatemala Partnership of New Castle Presbytery will match your gift with three egg-laying chickens. The food kit will feed a family of five for one month. The chickens will lay an additional 60 eggs each month – for more than a year! (This offer will apply to the first 100 food kits purchased.)
