Our PleasantVille Neighbors committee agreed to begin supplying 40 additional students with food for the weekends.

This is an amazing opportunity to show love to our youngest neighbors by meeting practical needs.  Mimi Brown, agreed to chair this effort, has organized a space for storing food, and began obtaining volunteers to start this ministry.

While the need is immediate, it will also be ongoing and will require our church’s attention over the long-haul.

 

 

 

back-pack-2How can you support and get involved in this new ministry?

1. Donate money regularly for use in purchasing bulk food items from The Middle Georgia Community Food Bank and discount stores; a centralized purchase ensures efficiency, economy, and uniformity in food items to be delivered to students.

2. Bring items from the “Backpack Ministry Food List” to the plastic container in the CLC lobby.

3. Volunteer time organizing or delivering food –contact Mimi Brown at 478-994-5275 or mimibsn@bellsouth.net.

4. Pray for:  The children of L.H. Williams to have their nutritional and spiritual needs met; the staff at L.H. Williams as they care for and educate these children; and our volunteers to share  Christ’s love with the children they meet.
