Come join other parishioners as we prepare and serve a hearty breakfast to poor and homeless in our community. We prepare breakfast on Saturday, September 2nd, from 4:00 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. at the Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew (SsAM) located at 8th and Shipley Street, Wilmington. The breakfast is served at SsAM the following morning from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. This rewarding experience is also a way to get to know our fellow parishioners. If you have never done this, consider joining us this time! There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer. Questions? Contact Sue Welles at swelles1@Verizon.net or 302.299.9876 (cell). Outreach Ministry





NEW PARISH DIRECTORY

Immanuel_HarveyWe are preparing a new edition of the Immanuel Parish Directory. A draft copy may be found on the credenza in the foyer. Please take a moment to check your contact information to verify its correctness. If everything is correct, please put a checkmark (√) by your listing.

FOOD BANK OF DELAWARE

CHILDREN AT RISK HUNGER PROGRAM


Please join ICH in helping the Food Bank of Delaware provide children at-risk of hunger with nutritious, easy to prepare food for preparation and consumption at home. The Food Bank of Delaware provides food for children in need for weekends, holidays and when school is not in session. Some of their objectives are to reduce health problems in children who are undernourished, reduce the barrier of hunger that contributes to poor school performance, and directly empower school personnel to take direct action to benefit hungry children. ICH will provide backpacks available in the foyer to fill with items. We will be collecting food items until the end of August.

- Microwaveable Macaroni and Cheese

- Microwaveable Spaghetti and Meatballs

- Granola bars

- Apple Sauce

- Cheese Crackers or Peanut Butter crackers

- Cereal

- Shelf stable milk and juice

Thanks for supporting and making an impact on a child's life journey.

Faithfully,

Connie Shultz
