Dear Christ UMC Community,
We received an overwhelmingly positive response last summer from our church community to the continuation of the Southgate Village Kidz Summer Lunch Program. The families in the Southgate Village Apartments were extremely grateful that we were able to offer the program again and are looking forward to accepting our assistance this summer.
Here's the scoop…
Who: Southgate Village Apartment children, ages 3-13
What: Preparing, Delivering and Distributing Sack Lunches over Summer Break
When: 10 weeks from June 4 (Tues) though August 9 (Thurs)
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Where: Southgate Village Apartments, 143 Luther Street, College Station
How: Adult Sunday School classes and Small Groups will purchase all items, prepare in advance, and deliver sack lunches for a ONE week commitment (Tues, Wed, Thurs) to the Southgate Village Apartment children that are registered for the Kidz Summer Lunch Program
Other: Individual volunteers will sign up to help with the registration and administration of the Kidz Summer Lunch Program, including registration, daily check-in of children to receive lunches, directing children to the lunch pickup lines, and distribution of special materials or treats (i.e. children’s religious programming handouts, cereal boxes, other fun items)
Groups: Please choose a week to sign up for (3 day commitment) and put your class or small group name in the signup form, along with the main contact details (name and email) for that particular group.
Individuals: Please choose a week to sign up for (3 day commitment) and put your name and email in the contact details.
Once you have signed up, we will be in touch with more details to guide you throughout the process! We would LOVE for everyone to participate in this amazing community outreach, whether it be as a group preparing and delivering the lunches, or individuals who help with the administration and management of the daily process.
Thank you for your consideration in providing crucial service to our community outside the Christ UMC campus! We hope you’ll join us in blessing these families and enriching not only these children’s lives, but ours as well!
