We are excited to share a new ministry opportunity with you! Faith, Faith Kids and Faith Lutheran Day School (“FLDS”) are partnering with LovePacs to provide meals for local children over Spring Break.
LovePacs is a Faith-based organization, distributing packaged meals for disadvantaged families throughout DFW. Several of our local elementary and middle schools are classified as Title 1 – meaning that at least 30% of the students attending are on the free or reduced lunch program. Many of these students are living below the poverty line. The LovePacs ministry fills a void for these students when school isn’t in session. LovePacs feeds these students over the course of a school break, allowing them to not worry where their meals will come from.
The meals provided are boxed to ensure sufficient food for three children in a family over the course of the 9-day Spring Break. The meals are all canned items and represent a balance, including fruits & vegetables.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Faith will be collecting money during Noisy Offering on Sunday, February 4th to be used towards the preparation of Spring Break meal boxes for LovePacs. Money can continue to be donated during the month of February via PushPay by choosing the LovePacs 'giving type'.
Faith, Faith Kids
Please join us as we further God’s mission of providing for these students and developing relationships that matter!
