Local teens ‘taste hunger’ to help others
Bakersfield School’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter teamed up with area churches recently to fast for 30 hours while doing projects around the community to raise awareness and funds for World Vision’s 30-hour famine project. This year‘s funds go to help children in the Republic of Congo. The group is currently halfway to its goal of $1,868.88, which is what it costs to help a family become self-sufficient.
