MUST Summer Lunch Program
- Sandy Griffin and her team of volunteers will put together the lunch bags on June 20, July 18, and August 1. Please make checks payable to RUMC and not to the CUC Class. Mark on the memo line that the check is for the MUST Summer Lunch program. We have arranged with Bill Barbour, RUMC’s Treasurer, for these contributions to be credited onto each individual’s annual giving statement from the church office.
Now it is up to the rest of us to help in making lunches! Sandy is asking for many hands to gather to make 800 sandwiches in the DOD at 8:00 AM on Tuesday , June 20.
- The Griffins and Coelhos have agreed to co-chair the organization and implementation for CUC to participate in the MUST lunch program. Jim Boswell has agreed to manage the financial side of the program.
- This information should be helpful for you to decide how many lunches you would like to support. Completed Peanut butter ‘n’ Jelly lunch will be $1.00, Complete Ham and Cheese lunch is $1.35. Complete Turkey and Cheese lunch is $1.45. Three (3) families are already giving a check for $500 each and we encourage you to be prayerful and consider making a nice contribution.
- RUMC has committed to making 37,000 lunches in this summer program. The church will be working with CUC so your contribution will be tax deductible and shown on your annual RUMC statement.
