At a time when awareness of the economic difficulties of others is heightened, high school students from Nazarene churches throughout the Northwest demonstrated compassion to those in need.

In addition to Bible quizzing, sports tournaments, talent shows and more, students at the NNU hosted Regional Main Event viewed a two-minute video supplied by the Nampa First Church of the Nazarene’s Care House, an organization that provides groceries to low-income families. Main Event coordinator, Stacey Berggren, said, “The students’ hearts were touched by the hunger portrayed in the video. No one likes to see someone else go hungry. What little the students had, they gave.” The students donated $1,137 to the Care House—the largest Main Event offering on record.
