This Generosity Can initiative will benefit GO Pantry. GO Pantry provides food to Boone County children who do not have enough to eat at home. During the school year these kids receive breakfast and lunch during the school day. When school is not in session, many of them do not eat. GO Pantry works with school Family Resource Coordinators ("FRC") to identify kids with the most severe food needs. GO BAGS are delivered weekly to the school FRC/Counselor who then confidentially distributes the food into the kids' backpacks.
• The GO BAGS program sends home weekend backpack bags filled with two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, snacks and healthy drinks.
• We need your help to fill GO BAGS this school year.
First Church has been asked to collect two items for them to provide easy to use meals for the kids. 1) Individual bowl or packet size mac-n-cheese 2) 100% Fruit Juice drink boxes. Pick one or both items and let's stock their pantry full!!
Get involved by collecting these items, helping us deliver to or volunteering with GO Pantry. These donations are accepted at All Campuses and Venues of First Church. Look for any of the GREEN Generosity Cans located just inside the entry doors of the buildings. For more information about GO Pantry visit http://www.gopantry.org/.
