SNACK PACKS FOR KIDS
This is an on going outreach for us
For most kids the weekend means no school …
For other kids the weekend means no food...
SNACK PACKS FOR KIDS (SPFK) Outreach Ministry, sponsored by the New Creation Charge United Methodist Churches (Emmanuel, Eakle Chapel and St. James) can celebrate achieving its mission again .. to help reduce childhood hunger for many kids by providing nutritional, individually wrapped, ready-to-eat snacks for children who get their meals at school and may have little or nothing to eat during weekend breaks and school holidays.
The SNACK PACKS FOR KIDS program is non-denominational, and operated entirely by dedicated volunteers, and funded solely by generous donationhs from individuals, churches, local and area organizations and businesses.
Beginning, each school year, the SPFK volunteer team faithfully prepared weekly snack packs for many children (including siblings within the same household) registered in the program at the White Sulphur Spring Elementary School. That's a total of nearly 5,000 weekend snack packs at as approximate cost of $3.00 per weekend snack pack.
Donna Sams- Council, SPFK Coordinator is very gratful for the great team of volunteers, the generous financial supporters, and the excellent and caring faculty, staff and students at the WSS Elementary School. And, special thanks to the student's in the classes who helped with distribution of the snack pack totes to the individual teacher's classrooms on Fridays. Donna is looking forward to launching the SNACK PACK FOR KIDS program at the beginning of each new school year. VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS are always welcome and appreciated.
TOGETHER...WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
We would like to thank the financial supporters and volunteers!
