On August 26th, Midge Steward presented us with the opportunity to support the weekend backpacks to feed hungry elementary and, in addition this year, middle school children in Sturgis. It costs approximately $360.00 per child for the school year. Three churches plan to help to feed 110 elementary kids and middle school kids: First United Methodist, First Presbyterian, and Sturgis Missionary. In addition to church support, there were corporate grants, donations from local business, organizations and service clubs as well as private donations. Food is purchased at reduced cost from the South Central Food Bank in Battle Creek. Thanks to Parlin’s furniture for donating storage space. Meijer generously donated dental supplies. The best way to support this project is with your financial contribution so the program continues and expands to meet demand. Volunteers pick up food in Centreville monthly, weekly delivery people pack the backpacks on Thursday and take them to the schools. All money is used to purchase food, as volunteers donate their time and vehicle use. Contributions are tax deductible. If you would like to become involved, contact Julie Brenner at 467-3151 for details. Please give generously again. Forms are in the Messenger, or you can drop your donation in the office or offering plate (mark it for Helping Hands).
