In the summer St. B helped supplement Kids’ Pantry Bags for children who receive free breakfast and lunch during the school year. Helpline distributed approximately 175 bags each week for 10 weeks this summer, filled with nutritious food to be sure those children did not go without during break. Thank you all for your generosity.
Helpline hopes to distribute 400 bags during the Christmas break. St. Barnabas has been asked to help again to fill the bags for these children in need. We hope to collect 400 granola bars and 400 fruit cups to fulfill nutritional needs the federal subsidies do not cover.
Please open your hearts and donate throughout November so these bags can be filled for a December 2nd distribution during the school break. Place your donations in the basket at the base of the font or in the box inside the parlor doors. We know that well-nourished children are well equipped to learn!
Please do not take your Kids’ Pantry bag donations to Helpline! We need to keep count and donations that go directly to Helpline won’t go to the Kid’s Pantry. Thank you!
