Weekend food backpacks are being distributed each week to seven children at Bounday Street School. For the 12 weekends from September 6 through November 12 we have supplied a totalof 84 individual backpacks. Each backpack includes enough food for the child for a simple meal on Friday evening, Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch, Saturday evening, Sunday breakfast, Sunday lunch and Sunday evening.
Since SMLC began this project others have joined the call to feed the hungry children at Bounday Street. St. Luke's Episcopal Church, partnering with Harves Hope Food Bank, has now adopted three more children. With their help we now have ten children looking forward to receiving their backpacks each Friday.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. We now have enough money to support backpacks through the end of this school year.
Don't forget the first Sunday of each month to bring food staples for Manna House. The box is located in the hallway in the Fellowship Hall. Special offerings for Manna House may be made using the special envelopes in the pew racks.
