REACH: Bring Your BackPack Snacks This Sunday!

JUST A REMINDER….This Sunday, July 31, we have an opportunity to REACH into our community and show the benevolence of Christ through the BackPack Snack Program. We will be collecting non-perishable food items, school supplies and backpacks for students at Frankfort Middle School and Frankfort High School. Approximately 70% of the students at that school receive free or reduced lunches. Often, these students go home to an empty pantry and refrigerator on the weekends. This program makes sure they have food at home on the weekends.

Bring your items and place them in the pulpit THIS SUNDAY, July 31. Here are just some of the suggested items to include:

Non-Perishable Foods:
Pop Tarts, Oatmeal (Individual Packages), Cereal (Individual Boxes), Juice Boxes, Bottled Water, Applesauce Cups, Pudding Cups, Chips (Individual Bags), Peanut Butter or Cheese Crackers, Cookies (Individual Packs).

School Supplies:
Pencils, Notebook Paper, Spiral Notebooks, 1-inch 3-ring Binders, Eraser Caps, Backpacks

Let’s all work together to show these students the love of Christ by donating these needed items! For more information, see Kim Whittaker or Gala Catron.

Reach: Helping A New Friend

I introduced Cass Martin to some of you this past Sunday morning. He is a friend of mine that I have been blessed to know and study God’s word with over the last 8 months. He has decided to make Frankfort his home and leave his past behind. He has recently been given an opportunity at a new beginning. Cass has a job lined up and will start next week, but as many of you know, it’s tough to make it to that first paycheck when starting a new job. With your help, I would like to put Holly Hill’s mission for 2011 into action. We have an opportunity to connect, reach, and grow in many ways, and this may be an area that you can help. Cass needs several items to get him started in his new life.

 Items that can help: 

• Mens shirts – large
• Mens pants/jeans 32X30
• Mens shoes (dress/athletic) 8.5
• Mens dress & athletic socks
• Bed Sheets/Bed Spread – Full Size
• Pillow/pillow case
• Towels
• Wash Cloths
• Pots & Pans
• Plates/Bowls
• Flatware (utensils)
• Glasses/cups
• Kitchen towels/dish rags
• Dish drainer
• Television
• Radio
• Vacuum Cleaner
• Microwave
• Computer (you never know, someone may have one they no longer use).

 If you have any of these things and want to donate them to Cass, let me know as I will be coordinating the collection of these items. Thanks, and God Bless!
