School Lunch Distribution Update

First, THANK YOU to all who have helped plan for, shop for, and contributed financially to this effort!!!

As you may already know, the Buckingham County School District was ordered to close its schools last Friday. They have done a fantastic job of making sure that the closure did not negatively impact their school lunch program. However, the School System had already planned to have their Spring Break during this upcoming Monday through Friday. Because of this, they will not be able to provide any lunches for the students in the district.

This burden has fallen to the Church to help fill in the gap. Through many phone calls, lots of struggles, and a few detours, we believe that we are ready to help meet this challenge. Here is our plan:

SUNDAY, March 22, 12:00 PM - All who desire (NO MORE THAN 10 PLEASE) can meet at the Arvon Baptist Church Fellowship Hall to pre-assemble bag lunches.

MONDAY, March 23, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM (OR as soon as supplies run out!) - Pastor Geoff Bruschi, Pastor Anthony Sacco, and Pastor Ben Brewer AND All who desire to help will meet at Arvon Baptist Church to distribute 150 McDonald's Cheeseburger Happy Meals containing 1 Cheeseburger, apples, yogurt, and a juice box. Families can drive up, roll down their window, and receive 1 Lunch Per Present Student. Workers please assemble by 10:30 AM.

TUESDAY, March 24 - Bethlehem Baptist Church Is Distributing Lunches at Gold Hill Elementary and the Christian School in Dillwyn with enough food to cover Wednesday as well.

THURSDAY, March 26, 11:00 - 1:00 PM - All who desire to help will meet at Arvon Baptist Church to distribute 150 premade sandwiches (ham and cheese and turkey and cheese) from Pino's along with our pre-assembled bag lunches including a juice box, applesauce, granola bar, string cheese, goldfish, and a spoon! Workers, please assemble at 10:30 AM. 

FRIDAY, March 27 - Plans are still being developed.

Thank you to Buckingham Baptist Church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Calvary Baptist Church, Bethlehem Baptist Church, and Arvon Baptist church for your financial and manpower donations. We are more relevant now than you can imagine. To God be the Glory!
