The Weekend Food Program serving children in need is off to a great start for the 2017-2018 school year, thanks to our many volunteers and donors. Thank you all for your help! As of 9/26 we are serving 81 children at 8 schools. Click on the Facebook icon (top right) for photos of recent packing and delivery.
Here's a link to SignUpGenius to volunteer for the following activities in October.
Apple Boxes Needed. Consider asking the manager at your grocery store for apple boxes. On November 27 we will pack for 6 weekends to provide food through early January. This means about 15 additional apple boxes are needed to make delivery to the schools. Thank you.

Crossroads-Connection works with counselors at local public schools to provide weekend food for children in need. Funding comes from local churches and church organizations, the Heritage Hunt Women's Organization, the Giving Circle of Heritage Hunt, local businesses, and individual donors. The number of children served each year depends on available funding.
Looking Back In Time... Just 2 years ago our organization was reaching 40 children at 4 schools. Today, thanks to donors and volunteers, we are able to serve 81 children at twice as many schools. The need is great. Can you help?
