Summer Lunch Program 2018

It’s that time again! The Summer Lunch Program is upon us. Last year, with the help of many in the community, we were able to provide 1,155 lunches to children in the Pitman School District. This year from June 20 through August 29, the First Presbyterian Church in Pitman will provide lunches to children in the school district who are eligible for free or reduced lunches during the school year. Once a week on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:30 PM, parents can come to our church and pick up five lunch boxes per child in their family. There are breakfast and lunch items in each box, none of which require refrigeration. Now, here’s where you come in! We need many volunteers to pack boxes and to distribute lunch boxes. We will pack boxes on Friday afternoon, June 15, from 1-3 PM in Memorial Lounge. The more the merrier – we’re looking for about twenty (there’s no limit!) volunteers for this endeavor. Next, we’ll need two volunteers each Wednesday evening from 4:30-6:30 PM in Memorial Lounge to distribute lunch boxes to eligible families. A sign-up sheet has been created with the website Sign Up Genius. It’s easy to use. Visit this site and click the box to ‘sign up’ next to the dates of your choosing. Then scroll to the very bottom of the page and click ‘submit and sign up.’ If you have any trouble or would prefer to sign up with the help of the Church Office, please call (856) 589-1050 or email. Please volunteer by Sunday, June 10, 2018. Thank you so much for continuing this important ministry for Pitman’s youth!
