On Feb. 27-28, they will join the efforts of hundreds of thousands of young people all over the nation who will set aside the usual "stuff" that fills their daily lives. Instead, they will partici- pate in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine 'On an Empty Stom- ach," the theme for this year: By going without food for 30 hours, they get a taste of what the world's poorest children and families face every day. Priorto the event weekend, students raise funds with the knowledge that every $30 they raise can help feed and care for a child for a month. Groups are al- so encouraged to perform hands- on service projects during the weekend to make a difference in their own communities. Famine funds contribute to World Vision's response in the United States and around the world, in areas where famine, conflict and other crises make children vulnera- ble to hunger and preventable disease. Portola students have decided that the funds they raise for 30 Hour Famine this year will go toward World Vi -• sion's relief efforts in Haiti. Since 1992, 30 Hour Famine has raised close to $130 mil- lion, representing countless lives saved. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries, helping approximately 100 million people every year. Teens interested in participat- ing in this powerful event or those who would like to con- tribute to the cause should call Pastor Dawn Pidlypchak at Portola United Methodist Church, 832-4979. :e Almanor BANK can still stand for SECURITY If you are looking for financial stability in these uncertain times, take advantage of the competitive rates on a FDIC-insured Money Market Account from State Farm Banl.
