fridaykidspakThere are presently close to 3,000 homeless children attending public school in Broward County. These children are fed in school, however many leave school on Friday not knowing if they will eat a meal before they return on Monday morning. As a church we decided to do something about this. We have been providing food for the weekend for 65 homeless children in the two schools closest to us – Challenger Elementary and Millennium Middle School.

In order to continue this awesome outreach program, we need your food donations. See the list below for a listing of items needed. Please consider adding some of the single-serve food items to your shopping list to purchase on your next grocery run and drop off your food donations in the Lobby the next time you’re at church. Together we can make a huge difference in the lives of at-risk kids in our community!

  • Single serve cereal
  • Pop Tarts
