This year’s Ingathering event, which took place the Saturday before Thanksgiving, brought more than 300 United Methodists from across the Conference to the Arkansas Food Bank in Little Rock. More than 40 churches were represented at the event, where volunteers helped to pack 40,000 pounds of sweet potatoes and 3,500 pounds of dried beans, which will be stored and distributed to area food pantries around Arkansas.

In addition, two pallets of disaster relief buckets and nine pallets of school and hygiene kits were collected.

Check out the pictures from the day, and make plans for you and your church to attend Ingathering in 2020!
