This Lent, we are asking members of the congregation to participate in a Lenten Mission project to provide Spring Break food bags for our STAIR and LIFT OFF students. All of our STAIR and LIFT OFF children qualify to receive school breakfast and lunch every day during the academic year. However, during Spring Nreak, it is challenging for our families to provide three meals a day at home. These food bags will support the families’ nutritional needs during Spring Break.
We are asking various groups within the church to “adopt an item” to fill the food bags. We hope that the whole congregation will take part in this effort by bringing new reusable shopping bags to send the food home with our students. Collection can begin right away and the bags can be dropped off at any time in Room 303 at IPC. Deadline for bringing items is March 12. We will ask the congregation to help back the bags after 11:00 am worship on Sunday, March 15.
Thank you ahead of time for helping our STAIR and LIFT OFF students and their families have adequate food during spring break! Any items that are left-over after all bags are packed will be put in the IPC Food Pantry.
