Eakin Elementary food drive

Did you know there are children who live just a few blocks away from Belmont UMC who go to bed hungry? As a parent of a third-grader at Eakin, I’ve heard the stories for myself. Sitting in the cafeteria one day, a little girl told me that she and her mom had to sleep in their car for a while when her parents split up. As a parent and member of Belmont, I am compelled to reach out to the children right here in our own neighborhood who are hungry. BUMC is hosting a food drive to stock Eakin’s food pantry. Boxes will be at the entryways of the church to accept donations of spaghetti noodles, peanut butter, tuna, Easy Mac, fruit and applesauce cups, granola bars, and canned soup. Also needed are toothpaste, laundry soap, and gently used reusable shopping bags.
