Bro. Al's SnackPax for Kids Detroit
Thanks to the generosity of good-hearted benefactors I've been able to keep things going all these years. Opportunities and stuff just arrive in the nick of time! Prayers have definitely been answered! Recently, however, I've been praying for someway to keep our SnackPax children's meal program up and running for the remainder of the year.
We give out hand decorated lunch bags filled with breakfast bars, juice and fruit cups to Metro Detroit kids who are nutritionally challenged. Some contents are donated, some we have to buy. We also operate a food pantry at a local charter school which 144 four-year-olds attend, all living below the poverty level. I've been told by the person who "pays the bills" we will have to cut back. Frankly, I don't want to...and for a very good reason: Schools close during the summer months and schools are where most poor chiildren get their main meals. That means that rather than cutting back this time of year we actually have to increase our production of SnackPax!
Like I said, prayers have been answered along this line all my life in ministry. Maybe discovering this GoFundMe site is just an answered prayer in a high-tech way ;-)
If you can help with this challenge, God bless you!
Peace and all Good!
