Children from Brockton and Bridgewater work together to fight hunger on Martin Luther King Day
Recognizing that hunger is a real issue in our community, the children of Messiah Baptist Church in Brockton and of First Parish Unitarian-Universalist Church in Bridgewater are teaming up to help. They plan to conduct a food drive over the next month, gathering donations from their respective churches and from the community at large. They will then work in tandem with the food pantry at Messiah Baptist to shop for, package, and distribute food to those in need. Approximately 30 children, ages 3-16, will participate in this inspiring project, entitled We Can Help: A Child's Response to Citizenship and Community.
The project will begin on MLK Day, Monday, January 17. Please follow this blog for more information, as the children develop ideas for involving adults of their respective churches as well as the broader community.
