Episode Description:

Food Bank Chicken Canning Project
Plus: Lee Byrd, "The Integration of Maryville College"

The Mid-Atlantic and Southern Pennsylvania Districts of the Church of the Brethren for the past 37th years has co-sponsored a Meat Canning Project as a way to serve those in need. The goal of this year's project was the canning of 45,000 pounds of chicken, in four days. The canned chicken would then be distributed to local food banks as well as a special outreach program in Honduras.

The effort like many of the Church of the Brethren projects requires many dedicated volunteers and some solid financial support. "Brethren Voices" interviews Coordinator Rick Shaffer and other volunteers who assist in this huge effort of canning 22 tons of chicken.

Plus: Lee Byrd - "The Integration of Maryville College"
Just over 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work regarding integration in the United States. This edition of "Brethren Voices" features Lee Byrd, resident of Cross Keys Village - The Brethren Home Community, New Oxford, PA and his story about the integration of Maryville College, Maryville, Tennessee. Lee compliments his story by singing, "They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love."
