Sack Lunch Program Showing Signs of Success at The Carpenter's Cup

 Monday, June 3rd started our sack lunches. Just 3 days in and these lunches have been a huge success! People have donated food, paper products and money. Businesses have really stepped up to help with meals. We have purchased food from the donated money to last us until the end of next week. These meals will continue through August 2nd, God willing! We do still have a need for kitchen help and for delivery on the square and at the park just north of the Aquatic Center. Donations of food, lunch sacks, sandwich and snack baggies and money can be brought to the Carpenters Cup. Call 660-679-3333 if you have questions about the sack lunches.

The Back to School Project is also under way. We are collecting basic school supplies and money for all Bates County children. The Bates County Health Center has taken over this project from West Central. Any Bates County kid from kindergarten to high school can be signed up. The process is simple. Just call 660-679-3333 and give basic information on your child (children). A HARD deadline to sign up is July 26th, so sign up as soon as possible. The Back to School fair is tentatively scheduled for August 6th. Bring your donations of school supplies or money to either the Carpenters Cup or to the Bates County Health Center. Call 660-679-3333 to sign your child up. Please share this post or pass the word. Our goal is to help as many Bates County children as we can. Thanks in advance!
