Peralta Trail Elementary School has children and families in need. We provide a nutritious snack pack to students on a weekly basis. Every Sunday we collect food items such as:
Canned goods can include:
meat (beef, chicken, tuna, spam), beef stew, chili, soup, fruit, vegetables, raviolli, spaghettios, vegetable juice
Packaged goods can include:
cereal, oatmeal, mac & cheese, instant potatoes, crackers, snack packs, cheese crackers, cookies
Other items can include: shelf stable milk or choc milk, canned milk, dry milk, nuts, bottled water, canned or bottled juice. peanut butter, jelly/jam, dried fruit.
Individual serving sizes are great!
Please note: Some of the families do not have refrigerators or cooking facilities.
Our Christmas project centers around the Peralta Trail Angel Tree. We decorate the tree with angels who display wants, needs, and sizes for each child in the adopted families. We gather gift items purchased by members of the congregation, sort and wrap them, and get them ready for the families. We also gather extra food items for Christmas dinner and some things dad and mom might need.
Single dollar bills collected in the Sunday morning offering are donated to Christian organizations helping people. These are the organizations currently receiving these funds:
