Trinity United Methodist Church held it’s annual “Feed The Need” Stuff-a-Truck for CCS this weekend and collected 5638 items of food for the Pantry! “March Madness – Getting mad about hunger in Elkhart County” was the theme of the drive that had members collecting mostly boxed food items for the past few weeks.
The Sunday School kids focused on cereal boxes for the drive. “Children lined the halls with their favorite types of cereal to give to children in the community who might not have any,” stated Michelle Lau, Director of Children’s Ministries. Food was also collected by community kids that were involved with the popular “Upwards Basketball” and “Upwards Cheerleading” that recently ended it’s season in Trinity’s Life Center.
It was an exciting weekend as congregation members dropped food off before and after all 4 worship services. The drive also caught the attention of MSNBC correspondents who are in town! They not only interviewed people, but also lent a hand in loading and unloading the truck at Church Community Services.
