Food for Kids is a program that supplies up to 200 children each week with a weekend snack during the school term. West Helena United Methodist Church has joined in mission with Helena First United Methodist in this program. To supplement the monthly deliveries of food items from the Arkansas Rice Depot, approximately$500 in additional food purchases are required to maintain this mission project. Volunteers meet each Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. at the West Helena UMC to package food. Deliveries are made during the week to the Helena-West Helena public schools.
The Pumpkin Patch is a great example of this amazing ministry!
THE PUMPKIN PATCH and it’s activities were begun to fill the monetary need of FOOD FOR KIDS. Both the Helena First United Methodist Church and the West Helena United Methodist Church are working hard to grow this fund raiser to meet the mounting needs of FOOD FOR KIDS in the Helena – West Helena school district.
We welcome donations of volunteers to work the program and the fund raisers. For information on where the next meeting is, please contact the Helena Methodist office at 870-338-7418.
