SEASONAL PROJECTS ARE A GREAT WAY TO PARTICIPATE
Summer Lunch For Kids
Children who receive government sponsored free lunch during the school year cannot always find transportation to the free lunch programs during the summer break. So, volunteers package lunch for each client's child and distribute to families when they visit the food pantry. Lunch items, bags and bagging help are always needed.
Summer Lunch Ideas
Back To School Clothing Drive
Volunteers collect school clothing and shoes, all summer long throughout the Milford and Highland areas. Some community members have shoe drives or donate to purchase items that need to be new such as underwear. This project helps us offer a free shopping day for kids prior to the beginning of school, and sometimes a free hair cut too.
Back To School Ideas
Shop for toys, games and other items for children between the ages of newborn to 18 years old. Gifts can be from $10 to $50 each. Deliver unwrapped gift(s) to Community Sharing during the month of November. Clients will then be able to select & wrap gifts for their children during December. This is a "feel good" project for all involved.
Joy of Giving Gift Ideas
