BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES
This fall, we are again supporting the Foster Care Program in Tompkins County with a BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES program. Currently there are about 100 foster homes in the county. Children in foster care often move around during the year and are not necessarily eligible for backpack give-a-ways at the beginning of the school year. In addition to using backpacks for school, they frequently have nothing to carry their belongings as they move to and from a foster home. This will provide them with something uniquely their own.
Our target number for this fall is 20 new backpacks and school supplies to fill them. We have committed mission committee funds and personal donations from committee members; in addition, we hope for donations from you, the congregation. With careful shopping, a backpack can be purchased for $15-$18, and supplies for $17-$19. Donations are due September 25.
You will find sign up sheets and information both at the front (with the backpacks) and on the crowded table in the back of the sanctuary. If you would like to support this project, please sign up and then take an information sheet. If you would like to donate money for this project, you may give it to any committee member, clearly marked for the backpack project.

Thank you from all of us for what you do to help others.

A Message from the Trumansburg Food Pantry
Dear Community Members,
The Trumansburg Food Pantry is fortunate to have the continued support of such a
wonderful community. During the past year our community helped many families
through difficult times. Many of our clients expressed their thanks and said that by
using the food pantry they were able to stretch their income to pay other bills such as
heat and medical expenses. One other client was grateful to the pantry because she
was unable to work since finding daycare for her special needs child was difficult. Our
distributions helped around 66 senior citizens on a fixed income during 2014. This
great community helped 269 households and 29 students from the Trumansburg
School District with their food security needs during 2014. The Food Pantry Steering
Committee cannot thank you enough.
March and April are the months the Trumansburg Food Pantry holds its annual fund
raising campaign. Last year in 2014, during the March and April campaign, our great
community raised $15,849 in cash donations and collected 4,728 food items for use in
our pantry. This fundraiser helped cover 25% of our expenses for quality food choices.
We are hoping to have the same results this year.
If you are asked to donate canned food to any organization during March or April,
please open your cupboards and give generously. You can also bring your nonperishable
food donations directly to your church or the collection box at Shursave. If
you would like to make a cash donation you may make a donation to the United Way
in support of the Trumansburg Food Pantry or mail your tax deduction donation to:

Founded in 1988 by Sara Pines, MSW, Ph.D., Friendship Donations Network’s mission is to rescue fresh nutritious food from stores and farms that would otherwise be thrown away and redistribute it to neighbors in need. This is accomplished by an extensive network of volunteers who pick up donations of mostly perishable excess and day-old food and deliver them to pantries and programs that serve in excess of 2,100 people weekly. We divert over 500,000 lbs. of good food from the landfill each year!Find us on Facebook:
