With school beginning again, JFY packing is gearing up again.  A typical JFY bag contains 2 drinks powders, cereals, jellies and lunches, along with 1 sweet, salty, Pop Tart Bites, fruit, peanut butter, and hot chocolate.  We try to vary the sweet, salty and fruit we give.  The products selected are usually based on the cost/sale at that time.  The photo below shows what a typical bag includes. While numbers of students change as some move in and others move out, we have been averaging over 50 students each week. With 38 weeks of bags the total cost for the year is high. Prayerfully consider adding a donation to the JFY line on your envelope. We will continue to pack the first Monday of every month with the exception of September which is the first Tuesday and January as the 1st falls on a Monday. The dates for the upcoming year are:

            September 5, December 4, March 4, October 2, November 6, April 1, February 5, January 8, May 6

We begin at 3:00 in the lobby in the back of the church off the Family Life Center and are typically done by 4:00.  If you have any questions or would like to be added to my email reminder, please let me know.  Thank you all for your prayers, help, and donations. -Debb Bowman – 717-877-5761
