This is soooo exciting! I have so much to tell you! We opened our doors on June 17th and have been very, very, busy since then! This past weekend we gave out "Backpacks" for children to go back to school with. We gave out so many... all we have left is school supplies! So if you need them come down and pick them up. School will be starting soon! and I know that some of you are REALLY happy about that! Me too! I am looking forward to it! We will be starting our "Power Pak" program in September again. This program is sponsored by the Catskill Elementary School Business Club. Their students help me fill these bags at the pantry and we bring them to school. On Fridays we pass them out to all the children on my list. My list is growing too! If you know any child in grades Kindergarten through 5th that could use a "little" extra food for the weekend, please let me know.
I am also excited about our new program that we will be starting up this year. The program will be called, "Senior Pals." We will have some elementary school children help me deliver "extra" bags of food for our Senior Citizens that may need a little help during these trying times. We will also try to help them with little things they may need to help them. We are looking forward to starting as soon as possible. If you know of any senior citizen that may need a "little" help, please let me know.
ALSO, we have been given donations to Matthew 25! and with this extra money we are so happy to be able to supply our friends with a little extra for the holidays. We will be having Thanksgiving Bags, Christmas Bags and Easter Bags! I am so excited!!! More info to follow as we go on!
I THANK You and Everyone who has helped Matthew 25 iin any way! God Bless YOU ALL and I personally want to THANK my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for everything He has done to help all of you!
