Hope Lutheran Church to host Poverty Awareness event Sept. 9

It is common to think that issues of homelessness, hunger, and poverty are far away from small communities only found in big cities. However, right here in Waushara County one in six children live in poverty.

The community is wel-come to come learn how they can help by attending the Poverty Awareness event hosted by Hope Lutheran Church, Wautoma. The event will include: speaker Dr. Groos- Bread of the World, community resources, how everyone can help, and a Community Food Challenge simulation.


The doors open for registration at 1:30 p.m., and the program will be 2-4 p.m. on Sunday Sept. 9 at Hope Lutheran Church, located on 301 E. Mt. Morris Ave, Wautoma. Bring your friends and family to learn how you can make a difference in your community.
