Vacation Bible School Holds Drive for NEEDS

Pantry coordinator Maureen shared this story of generosity during NEEDS’ most challenging season:

“How much can you expect from very young kids? It turns out to be a LOT!

When Madeira Silverwood Presbyterian Church’s Vacation Bible School program offered to hold a food drive for the NEEDS pantry, we didn’t expect a big donation. But the kids and their families were overwhelmingly generous. For a relatively small congregation, their donations filled an SUV to the max with items that will keep our pantry stocked for the weeks ahead.

Summer is the most demanding season for the NEEDS pantry. All the usual organizations that hold drives for us are closed and church members are on vacation. Our shelves empty quickly as more children are at home and doing without their subsidized school breakfasts and lunches.”
