Our Swift food pantry served 27 families that included 76 individuals on Jan. 8 and 15 families that included 25 individuals on Jan. 22. We served 19 families that included 53 individuals on Feb. 12 and 31 families that included 55 individuals on Feb. 26. Thank you to the many volunteers who donated their time to help the food pantry provide for the less-fortunate in our community.
Souper Bowl Sunday
On Sunday, Feb. 2, the Swift family celebrated Souper Bowl Sunday, hosted by Mark Melton, fellowship elder, and our youth at Swift. Once again, this annual event was a big success for all that could attend. And our food pantry was the recipient of $687 that was raised from your donations.
Elberta Elementary School
It has become a special mission to serve Elberta Elementary School (EES) with the needs of the children that are less privileged in our community. Swift Presbyterian Church has continued to restock EES with snacks for the children. Our “two cents a meal” donations, along with individual donations, support our EES mission.
Baldwin County Sheriff’s Boys Ranch
Our support to the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Boys Ranch can be extended by helping them locate additional staff members. They are looking for a Christian, mission-minded couple to join their staff as relief house-parents with some light maintenance duties. This is a full-time, live-in position with benefits. The mission of the boys ranch can expand only when they have the appropriate staff. If you know of a couple that might be interested, have them call (251) 989-6392.
One Great Hour of Sharing
During the time of Lent, our mission focus will be on One Great Hour of Sharing. Our contribution goal this year is $2,000. We will keep track of the progress toward our goal using the clothes line, where each shirt pinned will represent $30 in donations. Please donate as your heart leads you for this worthwhile charity.
