Thirteen years ago Monsignor Francis X. Schmidt began the work of Father Chucks Challenge.  On April 22, 2017,  125 donors, volunteers and friends of FCC gathered at St. Isaac Jorges parish in Wayne, Pa. to celebrate and reflect upon the accomplishments of our FCC ministry.

Dear Donors,                                                †

              Covid-19 has ravaged our world in both human and economic terms. In Haiti the hospitals are full and there is a critical shortage of food.  Thank you to those who responded to our very limited appeal to ship food to the poor in our communities and surrounding areas in Haiti. The appeal ended June 30, 2020. Any donations received after June 30, 2020 will be included in a new 5% fund donor option.

      Our Mission Statement reads in part: “We are blessed to be … feeding the hungry.” Between July 1 and
Jan. 31, 2021 we are offering our donors the option to allocate 5% of your donation to feed needy families in both Nicaragua and Haiti. We will administer the funds to the country with the greatest need. All donations received after Jan. 31, 2021 will be allocated to one of our standard fund choices: Haiti, Nicaragua or Greatest Need. To be part of this, simply check the box under your return address on the mail in envelope, or for online donations follow guidance on the “donate” page.

        Father Chuck's Challenge, 
is a  small local charity
attempting to help clearly identified, desperately poor people in Haiti and Nicaragua with clear definite plans for...

"sheltering the homeless"  (new homes, latrines)

"feeding the hungry"  (chickens, fruit trees, seeds)

"giving drink to the thirsty"  (pure water to each home)

permanently!   fundamentally!   economically!   immediately!

St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Francis Xavier are our patron saints.
     We call on their intercession for all involved in Father Chuck's Challenge, and for missionaries everywhere.

"Whatever you do for the least of my brothers you do for me."  (Mt. 25:40)

Our Mission's trip to Haiti was chronicled by Food for the Poor's videographer.
