Each semester, school supplies are collected from donations. These items include rulers, paper, notebooks, pencils, crayons, and other items. They are then distributed to school age children.
Every child should have good shoes, and many children enjoy having new shoes for school. Feed My People purchases $15 gift certificates from Payless Shoe Source, to be given to school-age children.
LAYETTES FOR NEWBORNS
Baby layettes with items suitable for newborns (clothing, diapers, bottles, blankets) are given to first time mothers. These items are often donated and put together by a special volunteer who cleans, sterilizes, and prepares these lovely layettes.
