This year funds raised will be split between two important ministries:
1. The Florida United Methodist Foundation’s Next Generation Fund which provides small grants to programs and ministries that foster the spiritual growth and church leadership development of children, youth and young adults ages 30 and younger.
2. Florida Advocacy Days (FAD) Young Adult Sponsorship. This will enable a new generation of leaders to receive training on critical issues, meet with elected officials and engage in conversation that will minimize or prevent hunger and homelessness in children and senior citizens in Florida due to a lack of resources.
