Pack A Sack

Many of you have asked how they can help with pack a sack, so I thought I’d put together some additional information on needs, how you can help, etc.
  • Prayers – We deliver bags every Friday.  Consider adding these children to your prayers on Friday’s.  We pray these bags bring them hope, they feel love that went into packing them and that this food provides the nutrition they need.
  • Include Pack a Sack in your giving at Wesley. 
  • Pick up a few items that are highlighted in the weekly information that is sent out in the This Week at Wesley
  • Coupons/Coupon queens – Do you know someone that loves to coupon and is really good at it? We would love to have them help us decrease our costs associated with purchasing food items for the weekly bags.  If you know someone or know of a “coupon group”, I’d love to chat with them to see if they can help us save some money.
  • Walmart Neighborhood Grocer (Town n’ Country) – does anyone know a manager that works at this location?  It appears they already support Town n’ Country Elementary school as one of their chosen charities, so I was hoping to maybe speak with someone there to about helping us help TNC by providing some food items, plastic bags, etc.   A personal introduction can go a long way.
  • Corporate Sponsors – We are still looking for corporate sponsors for Pack a Sack.  If you know of anyone that might be interested in helping with a one time or monthly contribution, I’d be happy to speak with them and answer any questions they might have.
  • Food drive – do you belong to a group (like Bunco, a book club, or even a group of co-workers) that might be interested in gathering food items for PAS?  This year we had the brownie troop that meets at Wesley collect food, another girl scout group collected, Pinellas County Property Appraisers office collected items over the holidays and Sweetwater community just down the street collected items this past weekend at their annual Spring Fling.  I’d be happy to help with putting together a list of items for your group.  Small groups can really make a big impact…

I hope this helps and again, we sincerely appreciate all your prayers and support these last few years with keeping Pack a Sack going and growing every year.
