Summer is supposed to be a wonderful time for kids – but many struggle with food insecurity causing them to worry about their next meal, not what fun they can have. When the McKinney schools are closed for summer, nearly 9,000 McKinney children need help with food subsistence because families cannot afford rent, utilities, medical bills AND food.
This summer Trinity will be participating in two Summer Feeding Programs.
Community Lifeline Center (CLC)
The Community Lifeline Center will be implementing a Sack Summer Hunger program to help feed McKinney children. TPC has committed to change the world for 40 Scott Johnson School children and their families by pledging to raise $3,200 for the summer food sacks and volunteer to deliver them each week this summer.
How can you help:
During the months of March and April, donate funds to cover the cost of the weekly food sacks.
Over the summer, volunteer to help deliver the sacks each Saturday morning from May 30th to August 8th.
To participate in this program, you can sign up via Signup Genius, sign up at a table in Eva Joplin Hall or by contacting Michael Palmer at email@example.com or 215.720.9114.
The McKinney Little Free Pantry
The McKinney Little Free Pantry will be implementing a second summer feeding program weekly from June 2nd to August 11th.
Volunteers are needed to make and distribute 250 sack lunches of PB&J, fruit, snack and drink each week. It is a one week, 2-day required commitment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 12 pm to make the sack lunches and then distribute. 125 sack lunches will be made each day for a total of 250 sack lunches for the week to place in the pantries. In lieu of volunteering, donations are also accepted to fund the cost of the sack lunches which are $1 each.
