MUST Summer Lunches

Some CUC members picked up supplies this past Monday and prepared the Must Ministries foods assembly line in the Dod for the Tuesday CUC Crew. (Then  they checked out the new RUMC Coffee Shop and reported that the coffee shop looks nice after remodeling and renovating and the coffee was fine.)

 The CUC Tuesday Crew packed 1000 bags. Thanks to Sandy Griffin and her committee and all  helpers  and  financial  contributors  who  put  together  3000 lunch bags for the MUST Lunch  Program this  summer. The MUST Summer Lunch Program will continue to deliver lunches each day through August 9. To sign up to pack and load lunches or to drive and ride on a delivery route, visit
