Saddle Ranch Ward Provides Food For Needy Children, and You Can Help, Too!

The Saddle Ranch Ward has “adopted” 102 third graders from a school in Denver. Eighty percent of the kids in that school are on free and reduced lunch. Some kids ask their teachers and the office staff for food to take home because there is little food at home . We decided we would help alleviate their hunger during the weekends. Each month we are making weekend bags for the kids to take home.

We could always use extra donations of food to help these kids. You can bring the donations and place them outside Bishop Cutlers office. Or, drop them off in front of Sheryn Thomas’ house or Pam McEwen’s house. Our next deadline is Conference weekend!IMG_0424
 

 

 

 

 

Suggested food items are:
Mac and Cheese
Oatmeal
Mini boxes of cereal
Pretzels
Gold Fish
Squeezable applesauce

Each month we need to collect 408 of each item! Anything above what we need, will be given to the office to help the other kids in the school.

It was a great service activity, all ages could help!
