July Distribution: July 27th
For several years, we have teamed up with Boyer’s grocery store in Lykens to purchase the meats and more for the monthly food boxes. They have been a great supporter of this program and the Just For You backpack program. Their employees have a weekly “dress down” day where they make contributions to a charity of their choice. This year, they chose our Just for You program! Several members of our team were on hand this month to receive their donation of $832.00. We can’t say enough about the service, generosity and compassion of the family and the employees of Boyer’s Market. P.S.~ Their red velvet cupcakes are awesome, too!!!
We continue to deliver an average of 40 boxes of food to local families each month. We have teamed up with the Central PA Food Bank to purchase food items at a very significant price cut. In our recent
inspection – which we passed with flying colors – we were told that since July of 2017, we have purchased 10,636 pounds of food at a total cost of $3,886.42. According to their statistics, had we purchased the same food from a grocery store, we would have paid $17,762.12!! Your continued generous giving of food items and financial donations enables this ministry to continue to feed Millersburg families and guarantees that the ministry is here for the long haul. God is using you and Grace Church in mighty ways. Thank you! We can always use donations of pasta, pasta sauce and dessert items if you come across some good bargains as you shop.
