    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    ‘Take a Bite Out of Malaria’ on World Malaria Day

    April 5, 2016 / By Laurel O’Connor / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    Churches of and communities within the Upper New York Conference can “Take a Bite Out of Malaria” on World Malaria Day, April 25. Conference-wide, churches are asked to work with local restaurants to receive a portion of their revenue on April 25 – which will go toward Imagine No Malaria, an integral part of Africa 360 – and then encourage members and friends to eat out that day.

    Participating businesses will get their name and hours placed on the Conference website with a reminder email blast sent the week before the event.

    This is a win-win for businesses and churches. It can help churches “spread the net” wider and invite family and friends to help save lives from a preventable, treatable, and beatable disease. The website will be updated as restaurants are added to the list; please use this letter to connect your congregation with a local restaurant.

    Laurel O’Connor is the Africa 360 field coordinator.
