Events

There are several times of the year that Papa’s Pantry & Family Ministries provides assistance’s to our Partnered Families – those expensive times that make many families shudder!


April / Easter

Bible & Christian Materials Drive – all of April. The bibles are given free. All other teaching materials are added to our library for check-out.

Easter: Easter Hams + holiday dinner makings are collected

Easter Baskets and goodies are collected for our “partnered kids”.


June/July Back to School Drive

Of course, kids need book bags, notebooks, pencils, pens, & calculators… but they also need shoes that fit and pants that are long enough…many times these are the biggest concerns of moms and dads.

You can adopt a back to school child, or your financial contributions are most appreciated!


October Cold Weather Drive

New and gently used coats are collected for our families!

We are also asking for new
electric heaters.

November / Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving, we customize this special dinner for each partnered client family based on a menu furnished by the client. It is our goal to ensure that even in these tough times, family traditions will continue with gratitude!

This is a busy season for food drives! Let us know if you are interested in hosting one!


Christmas!

One of the biggest times of our year! Food, toys, gifts, trees… all those things that make bells ring!

Mid-November: Families can be “adopted” – we try to match ages, boys/girls, & interests to better personalize everyone’s experience.

Many of our families are headed by single mothers. We ask for Christmas goodies for Moms too! Pajamas, wallets, and jewelry are examples of what Moms most enjoy.

Call or email if you are interested in this program. Because we work closely with each family and get to know them, we believe this lessens the risk of “fraud” or “duplication of efforts” from one charitable organization to another.
