Mission & Justice Power Packs
Thank you to everyone that dropped off donations for the Weekend Power Pack project! This picture shows the 12 complete packs that will be delivered this week! The Mission and Justice committee is going to continue accepting donations throughout the fall as this is a real need in our community. Carnation Elementary alone distributes 65 Power Packs each Friday. So if you haven’t been able to donate there is still plenty of time! (Weekend Power Packs are packages of food that are sent home on Fridays with children who may face food scarcity over the weekend.)
At this time our main needs for the next round of completed packs are: Drinks: shelf stable plain or chocolate milk, 100% juice apple, fruit punch, etc.; Breakfast items: individual cold cereal, instant cream of wheat (packets), breakfast drinks in individual bottles (shelf stable), protein/granola bars, and not oatmeal at this times as we have plenty; Lunch items: Mac and cheese, hearty soups, beef stew, chili, tuna/cracker packs, chicken/cracker packs. If you are not able to go shopping but would like to help the cause, please see Becky Reimer or Debbie Leone and they can collect your money and shop for you. Questions? Please contact Becky Reimer. Thank you!!
