Grace Lutheran Church is once again collecting items for the Governor Mifflin schools’ Power Pack program. Power Packs are distributed to students at the start of long weekends or holiday breaks to provide them some extra nourishment. Grace was asked to provide fruit snacks, individual applesauce and fruit cups, and breakfast items like small cereal boxes, pop tarts and breakfast bars—things that can be individually distributed. Please help us gather these items, and drop them off at church on Sunday or during the week, Monday through Thursday between 9 AM and 1 PM. Thank you in advance for your help with this ministry!
