We hosted a party for 40 students and their families- for children chosen from FLW- complete with gifts, lunch, and games! The parents wrapped the gifts while the children were elsewhere playing games!
Operation Christmas Child 2017
We collected 191 boxes for Operation Christmas Child this year!
Each year we partner with Fred L. Wilson Elementary School to provide backpacks, complete with grade-appropriate supplies, to many students and their siblings. In 2017 we provided 43 students with their class specific backpacks as we celebrated our Back to School Blast with lunch for their entire family.
Mobile Food Pantry
Each spring, Memorial United Methodist hosts the Mobile Food Pantry. This spring it will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 4th.
We are partnering with Fred L. Wilson Elementary in a variety of ways and many can be seen on our C4C page. The backpack giveaway was specifically geared to students at Fred L. Wikson where we continue to particpate in duty-free lunches; and one-on-one tutoring. We were awarded a Volunteer of the Year award by Kannapolis City Schools in 2015! Our new ministry provided 60 sweatshirts, with an inspirationalmessage attached to each, for children who may need a little more clothing during the cold months.
