First McKinney has the opportunity to partner with a local homeless ministry, Emmanuel Labor, to provide 120 sack lunches each Monday (during the COVID-19 health crisis).
If you are interested in helping, please review the available slots below and click on the button to provide sack lunches.
WHAT TO PROVIDE: Each volunteer is asked to pack 10 sack lunches and include a sandwich (PB&J, ham or turkey), chips, fruit and a snack bar for each lunch.
- Because many in the homeless community have dental issues, please do not include apples in the sack lunches. Select fruit that is easier to eat such as oranges or grapes.
- Do not include any homemade items. All food (except the sandwiches) needs to be pre-packaged. This is a guideline from the City of McKinney that we must follow in order to continue serving lunches to our homeless friends.
- Please pack the sandwiches and fruit separately. Place chips and snack bars in each of the ten paper lunch sacks you are providing. Each sandwich needs to be placed in its own ziplock bag, labled with the type of sandwich and remain separated from the lunch bags. The fruit should be placed all together in a bag and remain separted from the lunch bags as well.
DROP-OFF TIME: No later than 8AM on your assigned day
DROP-OFF LOCATION (rain or shine): Parking lot in front of Family Life Center
John Wills, our Executive Pastor, will have his truck (gray Tundra) parked in front of the FLC. Sack lunches will be loaded into his truck.
NOTE: Volunteers from First McKinney will only provide the sack lunches. We will NOT serve lunch. (Sandwiches will be kept refrigerated until lunch time).
A SIMPLE REQUEST: If possible. please take pictures while you and/or your family are preparing the sack lunches or when you drop off the lunches. Send photos to [email protected] or [email protected] We want to collect pictures of those serving so faithfully during this COVID-19 season and possibly share in a video celebrating the many opportunities God provided for us to live and love like Jesus during this unusal time in the life of our church.
