PACKING IN THE PANTRY
Special Announcement - April 2020
At this time, we are not accepting new volunteers with the Backpack Buddies program at Galilee Church due to the COVID-19 situation. We hope to reopen these opportunities for the 2020-2021 school year.
The best way to support the program at this time is to donate Family Break Bags which are being distributed on a limited basis to families.
Please visit galileeumc.org/family-bags for more information and instructions.
Individuals, families, groups, and corporation can join us in solving the hunger issue in our community. Meal packs are assembled on a weekly basis and volunteers from the community are encouraged and welcomed to assist us at all packing events.
