SHIM During the summer food donations are fewer at SHIM while the need for food is increased with children home for the summer and not eating breakfast and lunch at school. Here at Faith we usually do our large food drive, Manna Sunday, in November which is when donations to SHIM are high. So this year we will have a large food drive throughout the month of May so local children aren’t going hungry during the summer months. Any time throughout May please consider donating the following : Cereal & Oatmeal, PB & Jelly, Pasta & Sauce, Rice & Beans, and Healthy Snacks. With your help we can have a HUGE food drive Thank you !!!
