New Providence Middle School looking for sponsors to support their F.U.E.L. program

 
Pastor Tommy Vallejos

Pastor Tommy Vallejos

I am writing to ask for your assistance. New Providence Middle School could really use some help with their FUEL program.  They have 120 students who take home a backpack of food each weekend and they have community sponsorship for about 50 of those students. They have attempted to round up donations to feed the rest through their guidance department and PTO shops for those remaining students.

If you would consider spreading the word so that anyone who may feel led to help with food or money for food could contribute that would be appreciated.  Please contact Mrs. Laura Barnett if you are able to assist in this matter. I know many churches are helping out at different schools.  I know that Faith Outreach for example is already committed to help 125 kids weekly at Byrns Darden Elementary School. This request is going out to elected officials, business owners, churches and citizens alike. Please step up and help. «Read the rest of this article»
