At this time when the schools are shut down, the need for food has not stopped. In place of actual food items, Ruth Harvest is requesting money donations. They will then purchase the food items needed and distribute the food to the children. Checks made out to "Ruth's Harvest" can be mailed to: Ruth's Harvest, PO Box 4771, Gettysburg, PA 17325.
Backpack Buddies is a ministry we are supporting to help local children who get reduced lunches at the local schools. Single serve food items will be collected through out the school year and then distributed to children on the weekends. Additional information is posted in the foyer and on Ruth's Harvest's facebook page at:
Some suggested single food items: Chef Boyardee cups, mac & cheese, kid-friendly soup,ramen noodles, applesauce/pears/ peaches fruit cups, pudding cups, jello cups, microwave popcorn, crackers, peanut butter to go, juice boxes, cereal, oatmeal, poptarts, 100-calorie snacks, Teddy Grahams,
Animal Crackers, raisins, chips, pretzels, granola bars, cookies, apples, shelf stable milk.
All our donations go to the Ruth Harvest's program in Gettysburg.
If you want to volunteer to help pack and distribute the back packs, please talk with Pastor George.
