FCC of Milton
Thank you for your continued interest and support of the FCC of Milton Bagged Lunch Project! With your help and generosity, we've delivered more than 2000 lunches to Father Bill's & Mainspring homeless shelter since the pandemic began.
We are now able to meet in a small group to make sandwiches and pack the lunches, by following important social distance requirements. We will meet OUTSIDE the church and work at sanitized tables, at least 6 feet apart. The group is limited to eight people (age 10 and up, with parent); please bring your own mask and hand sanitizer. A volunteer will drive the lunches to the shelter in Brockton when we are finished.
Anyone at high risk from COVID-19 infection should not attend (see below), but is invited to drop off donations. Anyone who has any symptoms of COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with symptoms or a positive test in the last 14 days should not attend.
This project is run by volunteers and completely funded by donations. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation is used to buy groceries (each lunch costs about $3 to make). Donate at www.fccmilton.org/give (choose "Bagged Lunch Project" in the drop down menu).
For more information about the project, please visit www.fccmilton.org/lunch or contact Wendy Garpow (617-910-6195 or [email protected]).
Thank you for helping us reach our goal of 4000 lunches by Labor Day!
