pack-a-sack2

A program close to our hearts, here at Wesley Memorial, is the Pack-A-Sack ministry.  Each Friday, the ministry delivers bags of food and hope to Dickenson Elementary and Town n’ Country Elementary to provide for chronically hungry children. This program is designed to send home bags of food over the weekend for those who may go without, from the free lunch on Friday until the free breakfast Monday morning.  The 2017-2018 school year started with 30 bags weekly and by the end of the school year, delivered 296 bags per month. 2017-2018 was the first year serving Town n’ Country Elementary and we were so happy to be able to reach more children.

Below is a list of items that are always needed to keep the shelves stocked and ready for the next delivery.

Current items in need:
Juice (Capri Sun or Juice boxes)
Granola Bars
Small boxes of asst cereals
Belvita Breakfast biscuits
PopTarts (Not frosted)
Chef Boyardee (7.5 oz size – any flavor)
Jif to Go (1.5 oz peanut butter)
Peanut Butter crackers (kid friendly flavors)
Applesauce Cups
Fruit cups
Libby veggie cups
Raisins
Pudding Cups
 

Donations may be dropped off at the church, Monday – Thursday between 9am – 3pm or on Sunday mornings during service times. If you have any questions about donations, or getting involved, feel free to call! We thank you for your prayers and support..
