food 4 kids backpack program   

Our May Mission project is the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program. This program assists in addressing food insecurities of children and youth in our community in grades PreK – 8th grade. Through this program food is distributed to children and youth on Fridays, or the last class day before the weekend or a break.  The primary goal is to help fill in nutrition gaps when school lunches are not available.

The youth of Wesley UMC have seen these needs firsthand and are asking that we as the church help them reach out to Charleston students facing food insecurity challenges.  Your financial generosity will help the youth of Wesley UMC minister to their peers through the Food 4 Kids Backpack ProgramOne way this will happen is Wesley UMC youth being directly engaged in purchasing food to support the program and then helping with assembling backpacks to be distributed to Charleston school district students in need.

If you would like to help with this effort, please make your checks payable to Wesley UMC with Food 4 Kids on the memo line.   Also, please use the white envelope in the pew back with the Food 4 Kids label on it for check and cash donations. You may also click on the $ at the bottom of the page or the On-line Giving tab.

The Mission Team and The Youth and Children of Wesley UMC thank you for your support.
