Feed My Starving Children Announcement
It is with deep regret that Asbury will not be able to host our annual MobilePack event for Feed My Starving Children. However, in true Asbury fashion, Asbury will be donating $6,000 to help continue the mission of feeding starving children.

We understand many people may still want to donate to this great cause. You can do so at the link provided below for the next few weeks. Please do not feel obligated. Asbury fully intends to continue with our pack next year and look forward to seeing everyone join together to support a great event for an even greater cause.
