There are many in our community who are struggling desperately to provide for their families in this difficult economy. Our hope is to help these families by giving away 425 food boxes during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Most of these boxes are delivered to public schools in our area who pass them on to families struggling to provide meals while their children are away from school-provided meals during the holidays.
We appreciate that you’re stepping up to the challenge of filling a box that will feed a family of four for one week. This is a big commitment—it’s around $50 to fill a box plus another $25 donation for perishables. If this is a stretch for you, consider filling a box with another family or join in with your Care Group to fill two or three boxes.
Together we can help needy families if only for a short time. God will use the Summit View family to bless others!
Food Boxes will be available October 26-December 14, 2014.
Please return your Thanksgiving box to Summit View by November 23 and your Christmas box by December 14.
Make a donation to the Food Box ministry in lieu of filling a box.
If you would like to help collect boxes on a Sunday or deliver boxes to schools, please sign up as you check out your box in the lobby or call Sarah Glassett at Summit View, (360) 260-8300. We are delivering Thanksgiving boxes on Monday November 24 and Christmas boxes on Wednesday, December 17.
