School will soon be out! Many children look forward to that time, but others are anxious because they may not have enough to eat. Over 275 children in the Pitman School District are eligible for the free or reduced lunch program and we plan to provide free breakfast/lunch boxes to any student who is eligible. The Invitation and Outreach Committee is coordinating this project and we need your help. We need assistance with assembling the boxes, packing the boxes with the non-perishable food, and distributing the boxes on Wednesdays, June 22-August 31, from 4-7pm. Sign-ups for these dates will be sent out soon. First, we need to prepare the boxes for distribution. Here are the dates when you can help with the box assembly and packing in Memorial Lounge:
- Friday, June 10, 9 AM-12 PM
- Saturday, June 11, 9 AM-12 PM
- Monday, June 13, 1-4 PM
- Saturday, June 18, 10 AM-1 PM
We are very thankful that West Jersey Presbytery awarded us a $1000 Grant for this important mission to our community. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Lovelace at firstname.lastname@example.org or Betsy Wriggins at Wriggins@rowan.edu.
