United Methodist Seattle fans think that they are Super Good at Super Giving, and that they can collect more donations for food pantries before the Super Bowl than we can. Well, we’re throwing a flag on that play!
Between this moment and the end of the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 1, it’s on! Your job: to collect as much food for a food pantry/shelf in your community as you possibly can, and add up the total number of items for a touchdown. Need to go for the conversion? Not a problem; tabulate your monetary donations as well, since every point matters.
The Merrimacport United Methodist Church is serving as one of many donation sites, and then we will pass the food on (or hand it off, or hand it off and then surprise everyone by passing it as well).
The Port Church will be donating items to the Merrimac Senior Food Pantry, and to Emmaus House Healthy Kids Snacks Program. Remember the goal is to do a Super Act of kindness for our communities.
Bring your non-perishable food when you come for worship on Sunday, Feb.1 at 10am, or drop off at the front door of the church anytime Sunday until 5pm. If you have any questions about types of donations, you can check out the UnitedinRedWhiteBlue website.
Remember to check your food for expiration dates– we don’t want any allegations that our equipment isn’t regulation.
Everyone wins when the people of The United Methodist Church work together in our communities! But here in New England and around the world, we know that patriot pride will carry the day. See you in the end zone!
Go Patriots! Go New England!
