For six years the churches of the New Wilmington Ministerium have supported PB&J (Packing Backpacks and Joy), the Wilmington Area School District weekend food backpack program. At the present time, 43 students in the Elementary School and Middle School are provided two breakfasts, two lunches, and three snacks each weekend of the school year.
There are eight teams of volunteers (three teams from NWPC) that pack the food and deliver it to the schools. Many generous people and organizations have provided financial support. It costs about $8000 each year for food and insurance.
PB&J needs money to continue serving the children of our school district next year. Will you donate to feed hungry children? Checks may be written to New Wilmington Presbyterian Church with “PB&J” in the memo line.
