50 in 50: “mite boxes” to support the farmworker ministry


50 in 50

During the Great 50 Days of Easter, churches throughout the Diocese of North Carolina and the Diocese of East Carolina will support 50 in 50, a concentrated fundraising effort capping off Harvest for Hospitality. Each household is invited to pick up a mite box from their church and, on Easter Sunday, to begin filling it with $1.00 per day throughout the Easter season. At the end of the 50 days, households will return their boxes to their churches, which will pass them along to the Episcopal Farmworker Ministry.

This is a great opportunity for children to develop habits of mindfulness and giving and for couples, families, roommates, co-workers – anyone, really – to participate together in a shared goal.

It’s never too late to start!

Boxes are available in the bell tower of the Advocate Chapel. But if you never picked one up, you can put cash in an envelope. Or write a check to The Episcopal Church of the Advocate and memo: Harvest for Hospitality.
