Feed the Hunger 2016

WCA's high school students packed #20,000 meals during its annual Feed the Hunger project! Not only were our students able to package all 20,000 packets of food, but they also collected the money needed to make this project a reality! These meals were prayed over by our students and were shipped to third world countries around the globe, not only to feed the hungry, but to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in orphanages throughout the world!

WCA 5th graders making a difference...

HaitiAwake Executive Director, Mrs. Becky Graves, after WCA's 5th graders presented her with a special gift in April...
"Incredibly thankful for the amazing opportunity to share HaitiAwake with this generous group of young people and their teachers this morning. They raised funds to donate two Lifestraw community water filters to our ministry. And ... they were also able to pay for shipping the filters to Haiti. What a blessing!" 

God Speed to HaitiAwake on behalf of Wilmington Christian Academy!
