January’s mission is: Healthy Snacks are collected for donations to area schools. Snacks are delivered in the fall and again in the spring. The school staff can pass snacks along to students who may be hungry and otherwise not have a snack to bring from home. We receive thank you cards and many grateful smiles from the staff and students. You will find a basket in the hallway by the church offices as well as in the church entryway for donating items. Please label your giving check or giving envelope “Healthy Snacks if you are putting them in the offertory collection. Here are examples of snacks that the schools find most useful to distribute: Snacks for donation must be individually wrapped with expiration dates of only a few months from “now”. We need Cereal bars, Animal crackers, Fruit Roll Ups, Teddy Grahams, Granola bars, Gold Fish crackers, Pretzels, Fruit snacks, Rice Krispy treat bars.
