Service Opportunity: Love in a Backpack

Thursdays, 10-11 am during the school year

Each weekend, millions of children go hungry. Hunger negatively impacts a child’s learning and performance in school. This year, Avery UMC is partnering with Trinity West Elementary and Washington Salvation Army to help children in our own community who go home hungry on the weekends.

On Thursdays throughout the school year, we will pack nutritious food to be sent home with qualifying children at Trinity West. The food will be donated by the Salvation Army and distributed by the school. Packing will take about an hour and will require 4-8 volunteers. The packing will take place at Avery. A sign-up sheet is available in the Welcome Center.
