St. Mary’s hosts ‘The Line’ screening
Recent polls show that one in four American children live in
poverty, while nearly half of all Americans live in poverty or barely above the poverty line.
One in five children in the U.S. lives in households struggling to put food on the table, when all it takes is one incident – the loss of a job, a serious illness or an accident – to throw someone below the poverty line.
The movie, “The Line,” documents the lives of four people who were forced into poverty following a life-changing event.
Their stories show how they work to get out of poverty and what it takes for this to happen.
A screening of “The Line” takes place at St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church, located at 140 Chestnut St. in Blowing Rock, on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. After the 30-minute film, there will be a follow-up discussion, and Todd Carter, manager of the Hospitality House, will be on hand to answer questions.
Light refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Lynn Coulthard at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
