Make a Difference!
Have you been looking for a way to make a difference? We have two ways for you to join in on our Summer Food Program this summer to make an impact on the lives of families in our community struggling with food insecurity.
Give Your Resources
First, give your resources by donating to Summer Food Drive! We are collecting food items to help feed around 300 children during the seven weeks of summer as part of the Summer Food Program at COTH. These are all children who receive breakfast and lunch at school during the school year but do not have great options during the summer months. This summer we are moving away from providing actual lunches for the kids towards providing items for family meals.
Collections will begin on May 9 and last through May 20. There are collection bins in the lobbies of the Chapel and Worship Center as well as throughout the Academy. The list of acceptable individually wrapped food items include:
- Canned tuna, chicken, vienna sausage, and ham
- Dried beans and lentils
- Jars of peanut butter and plastic bottles of jelly
- Dried pasta and canned pasta sauce
- Bags of rice
- Plastic bottles of cooking oil
- Bags of flour and sugar
