Youth from the Central Square Community Church Learn First Hand That a Little Love Goes a Long Way...
Wednesday, January 27, 2016
From November 22 to January 9, Sunday School youth from the Central Square Community Church collected loose change for their “Feed the Hungry” Campaign. It all started from a Children’s Story that was part of the church service on that Sunday and continued through the first of the Year. The Saturday before they presented their contribution to the Food Pantry of Divine Mercy, several youth met at Walmart and stayed within their $24.19 budget while purchasing the foods that the Food Pantry most needed, thanks to Dean Burdick, who is a CSCC volunteer at the Food Pantry. The photo collage shows pictures from the Children’s Story to their shopping experience to the presentation during the church service. Many thanks to grandmothers Nancy Pooley and Gerry Ingerson for the help they gave their grandchildren during this wonderful spiritual venture. CSCC Fellowship Team Leader Ellie Peavey planned and coordinated the project. In addition to the donation to the Food Pantry of Divine Mercy, the youth collected another $10 and donated it to the Food Bank of Central New York to feed 32 families. Later on in the spring, these young people will be touring the Food Bank to learn the value of their donation.

The entire Sunday School presented the food to the congregation including Riley Rose Banker-Winney, Emily Schuler, Jordan Fuller and Kianna Green.
