More than 30 percent of the children who attend Eakin Elementary, just a few blocks from Belmont UMC, live at or below the poverty line and teachers there have created a food pantry to help address this need. With the impact of Covid 19, this need is even greater right now and Eakin has reached out to Belmont UMC for help.
A list of needed food items is listed below. Please leave your donations in the Eakin collection box now located in the Community Center pre-event area. The CC is open each day from 9:00am-3:00pm.
Mac and cheese (boxes and easy mac cups)
