July is 'Strike Hunger' Month
Conway Cares is the in-school food pantry supporting hungry kids at several local schools in our own neighborhoods (started by a First Pres Life Community). Throughout July, we're collecting the following food items for children to eat at home on the weekends and after school.
- Granola/cereal bars
- Fruit cups/applesauce
- Juice boxes or pouches
- Single-serving cereal
- Peanut butter crackers (or similar snacks)
- Cans of pasta or vegetables (preferable with pop-top for easy removal by a child)
Look for collection bins in the Edington Ministry Center lobby or under the Angel Wing (any Sunday in July). If you have questions, call Amy Collis 407.423.3441 x1474.
Donate Time at Daily Bread
“When you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind; and you will be blessed.” - Luke 14:13-14
Daily Bread (at the Christian Service Center) recently served their 4,000,000th meal, an amazing accomplishment!! Since 1975, Daily Bread has offered a free nourishing noontime meal to anyone in the community who is hungry.
Give a couple of hours in your day and help your neighbor in need! Every year, First Pres commits to serving lunch each day of one week at Daily Bread. We need only 10 volunteers per day, and we have a spot for you.
To sign up yourself or a group, call Retha Underwood at 407.644.7531.
