It's the good Shepherd back to school drive! To benefit local kids and their families to the old Bridge food pantry The drive goes between now and September 17, 2017.
We are looking for back-to-school supplies like:
- composition books
- pencil cases
- lined paper
- colored pencils
- glue sticks
Back-to-school foods like:
- Breakfast foods (cereals, oatmeal, pop tarts, breakfast bars)
- Lunch foods (peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna, canned meats, juice boxes)
- Afterschool foods (macaroni & cheese, Spaghettios, canned soups, Beeferoni)
- Healthy snacks (fruit cups, canned nuts, boxes of raisins, microwave popcorn, granola bars, fruit snacks, Craisins, beef jerky, and whatever else you can think of)
These are just suggestions. The food pantry will take almost any nonperishable foods. Help give local kids in need all they need to go back to school this year.
Update from First Delivery: Here is a report from a delivery of School Supplies to Old Bridge Food Bank: “We delivered 10 boxes and 8 backpacks full of school supplies to the Old Bridge Food Bank. The women there were absolutely ecstatic. So many of the Food Bank recipients have children in the Old Bridge schools and can’t afford the supplies on the teachers’ lists each year.”
