With the beginning of theschool year, Operation Attack has seen many more requests for food and children’s clothing.  During the months of July, August, and September, we
provided clothing for 68 children and food for 187 family members. We provided
food for 56 senior citizens in conjunction with the Neighborly Care Network.

We want to extend sincere thanks to the following groups who held special donation drives and/or work projects for the benefit of the people we serve in the community:

Maximo Presbyterian Church donated 66 uniform items, 57 pairs of underwear and 47 pairs of socks throughout the summer to clothe children for going back to school.  Their
VBS also collected food for us.

The Faith Journey Sunday School Class at First Presbyterian collected new and gently used clothes, including socks and underwear, and almost $2,000 to help with Back to School.

Two Hangry Chicks organized families to make 79 food bags, including treat bags and children’s drawings, for seniors involved with the Neighborly Care Network.  Pathfinder

Outdoor Education provided the fun of a tree climb after the work was done. 

Each one of you, with your regular and faithful donations, special food and clothing drives, and volunteering your time, are critical to us being able to provide support to our neighbors in the community.  You are a blessing to us.
