Snack Sacks is a ministry that provides food for the weekends to children in area elementary schools. The program is truly a partnership between Arborlawn and the community. Together, we are working to ensure that all children have the food they need to sustain their growing bodies.
For the fifth year, Curves of Wedgwood has conducted a food drive to help supply the Snack Sack mission. Janet Culbertson, Arborlawn member and owner of Curves of Wedgwood, challenged her club members to provide cereal, fruit snacks, macaroni and cheese, and other food products for the Snack Sacks. We are so grateful to Janet and the women of Curves for their generosity and commitment to children.
This year, Arborlawn has provided Snack Sacks to three schools: Oakmont Elementary, Tanglewood Elementary, and Waverly Park Elementary. We have been blessed by the generosity of our members who donate time and money to support this mission. Together, we are expanding the mission as we strive to serve more children. Throughout the summer, we will provide 200 Snack Sacks each week to the children of the United Community Centers.
Arborlawn has made a significant commitment to children through this mission. We are so grateful to groups like Curves of Wedgwood for helping us keep our shelves stocked!
If you would like to help support Snack Sacks through a financial gift, snack donations, or by volunteering, please contact Rev. Beth Evers at the church (817-731-0701).
