We are fortunate to live in an area that is lower than average in childhood hunger, but the reality is that there are kids, right here in Troy, that depend on school lunches for their primary meals. During the summer, they do not have access to that food.
As a result, we are joining with other churches in Troy to provide bagged lunches for as many children as we can. Beginning June 6th, TUMC will be making and passing our bagged lunches at 3 locations throughout the city each Monday.
How can you help?
1. We need individuals and groups who will make the lunches. This can be done on Monday morning or Sunday afternoon/evening. The goal is to have 3/4 groups who will do 2/3 each during the summer.
2. We need a point person for each sight to help distribute the lunches (11:30 am -12:30 pm).
3. We need donations of bread, meat, cheese, vegetables, fruit, water, etc. Gift cards to grocery stores are welcome as well.
4. We need someone willing to help administrate and coordinate the groups.
