Trinity Lutheran Youth recently fasted for 30 hours while raising $1,200 to help hungry kids.

The youth group’s 30-hour famine began at noon March 15 and lasted until 6 p.m. the following day. To raise money, youngsters went door-to-door, brought change from home and collected donations on street corners.

They wound up with 98 pounds is cash, which equated to $1,200. They also collected 464 pounds of food, which was donated to the Plateau Outreach Ministries food bank. The money was donated to World Vision, which provides assistance to the needy around the world.
