Help for School Children

We have had a request from a school in Calgary that is experiencing an increase in the number of children coming to classes having had no breakfast and with no lunch. The school has recently had some funding cutbacks and wondered if we could provide some boxes of granola bars (nut free), cereal bars, packages of instant oatmeal that can be made with boiling water, small boxes of cereal and other non-perishable items that can be given out easily and do not require refrigeration. At the present time the staff at the school are providing the snacks. If each of us comes to church with a small box of something, we can make a real difference. If you place the items in the food bank box, Helen will be happy to collect and deliver them.
