Backpack news . . .
I'm forwarding a note from Pastor Andrea at Prince of Peace regarding the Weekend Backpack Project.
I know this is near and dear to many from St. Peter's, so I know by putting this out there you'll do what you always do . . .
Dear Weekend Backpack Partners,
Thank you so much for your support of the Weekend Backpack program. This ministry began in March 2015 with one child. Currently, we are serving 35+ families between Eagle River and Land O'Lakes. Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran continues to serve families at St. Germain Elementary School.
I have heard stories from Pupil Services, the District Social Worker and teachers about the impact that this ministry is making in the lives of students and their families. It not only reduces stress, makes households healthier and more productive, it enables youth to learn and grow. Thank you for helping to make this possible.
We had tremendous support with donations from the Community Wellness Center, St. Peter's, and people in the community just stopping by to drop off food. However, in the next week or two, the shelves will be near depletion. If you congregation or people you know could help in anyway, it would be greatly appreciated. We are already so thankful for the ministry that God has called us to and your generous support in this mission. We could not do this without your support!
While we are currently in need of all items, we are especially in need of juice boxes, soups, oatmeal, mac and cheese (microwavable), and other canned items such as spaghetti and stews.
Thank you again for all that you do. Even one box of oatmeal or a can of soup helps children and families in need in our community.
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor Andrea Fluegel
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
Weekend Food Backpack Effort Continues . . .
In order to continue to assist those children in need of meals over the weekends, we're joining with other area churches
once again to provide backpacks of non-perishable foods for the weekend, distributed through the school. Watch the bulletin for the most recent listing of needed items. Bring them to St. Peter's and place them in the designated tote.
This effort is currently serving around 40 individuals and will continue through the summer as well.
If you are able to help packing or delivering the backpacks, they are packed and delivered on Thursday mornings, packing starts at 9:00 AM. Contact pastor Andrea at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church 715-891-5975 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
And thanks for your help.
