I am grateful to God that as far as I’m aware, all of our church members are in good shape with regard to physical needs in this time of crisis. If I’m wrong in this, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible!
Unfortunately, many in our community are not as fortunate as most of us are. There are a lot of hungry people in Parker County. Last Thursday, the Emergency ‘Loaves and Fishes’ Food Pantry in Weatherford handed out 113 Boxes of food. The pantry will continue with a drive-thru distribution each week until at least the end of April.
A volunteer will come to your vehicle to remove the food. Just open your trunk or have the back door unlocked.
I have copied the shopping list below, and instructions for dropping off food items on Tuesday. Please prayerfully consider helping to restock the shelves for this week’s distribution.
You don’t have to do this, but I invite you to join Amy and me in helping take care of those in need.
Please purchase all items on the list. If you are unable to find an item, please substitute a comparable item. If you purchase everything on the list, you’ll probably spend less than $25.
Baking Mix (Bisquick or pancake mix) – 1 box
Canned Meat (chicken or tuna)– 2 large cans
Canned Fruit – 2
Canned Vegetables – 2
Cereal – 1 box
Jelly or Jam – 1 jar
Peanut Butter – 1 large or 2 small jars
Pasta – 1 any kind
Beans – 1 bag dried or 2 cans pinto or baked
Milk – 2 cans Evaporated or 1 box dried
The drop-off is Tuesdays from 11:00am – 1:00pm at the First United Methodist Church in Weatherford at 301 S. Main. You can enter the Family Life Center parking lot from College Ave. (Your passenger door should be toward the church.) Your vehicle will be facing Main St. Pull your vehicle up to the double doors leading into the Family Life Center and STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE.
Volunteers are needed to receive donations, sort food, fill boxes, and assist with pick-up and delivery to families. If you would like to volunteer at the Weatherford COVID-19 Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, please contact Deborah Cron at firstname.lastname@example.org. Write “Loaves and Fishes Volunteer” in the subject line of your email, and provide your name and phone number in the body of the email. Deborah will get back to you with the details.
