Christmas 4 Kids
The Food 4 Kids program is Memorial’s largest outreach mission. Approximately 50 volunteers are involved in purchasing food and packing backpacks for children at South Woods Elementary School to take home each week-end providing food they would likely go without. ALL funds donated go directly towards food and backpacks with no additional overhead costs involved. Christmas 4 kids evolved from this mission and has helped ensure that no child at South Woods goes without a Christmas gift. This year we’ll kick off with a sign up in the fellowship hall on Sunday, November 12 after each service. Please consider participating in this worthwhile endeavor in one of these ways:
1. Pick up a gift bag and wish list on Nov. 12. Purchase items from the list and add items if you’d like (Bags will specify age and sex of your child).
2. Simply purchase a gift (book, toy, clothing etc). We will make sure it gets to a child in need.
Please do NOT wrap gifts. School personnel will sort through the bags to be sure children receive equivalent items, which is especially important when there are several children from the same family.
We’ll collect the bags and gifts back in the fellowship hall after both services on December 10th. On the 12th, our volunteers will deliver them to the school. Contact Cathy Scovanner at 808-8691 with any questions.
