2001 Humanitarian Service Project

Food Banks

Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (John 13:34)

In the spirit of following Christ’s teachings to love our fellowman, we present the School of Abraham 2001 Humanitarian Project. This year we’re working on an outreach program to food banks across the state – and the country! It’s enjoyable, easy, doable with many children in tow, and most importantly it gives us an opportunity to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters in their time of need.

Here’s what you do:

Look on the food bank list provided (or in your local phone book) for the food bank closest to your home and call them for their donation drop-off times.

  • Discuss what you are doing with your kids.
  • Gather everyone up, head over to the food bank, and drop off your donation.
  • Report the number of visits to your local Saints and Scholars—Washington contact person or email direct to foodbanksproject@msn.com.
  • We’ll post updates throughout the year and give the grand total at next year’s conference!

One very simple way to participate in the service project is to have everyone bring items to your co-op meetings and support group meetings!
