Youth Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Join With Others To Assemble Snack Packs For School Children In Need

Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Chattanooga area joined with the Snack Pack Ministry, organized by Janice Robertson and Anita Kapperman, to help school children in need.  The Snack Pack Ministry provides food items for children in Hamilton County Schools who may be going home on weekends with little food to eat.  Snack Packs usually include 4 proteins, 2 fruits, 2 breakfast items, 1 milk and 1 snack in each bag.
 
Ms. Robertson and Ms. Kapperman said that the ministry has grown from taking 150 bags a week to four schools to taking 2,020 bags per week across 16 schools.  The ministry welcomes volunteers and donations, and youth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined in the community-wide effort last Wednesday.  The volunteers assembled thousands of bags at the East Brainerd Church of Christ, which will be distributed to schools throughout the Hamilton County area.  
 
“It was a wonderful experience to gather our youth and work shoulder to shoulder with many people from different churches in our community,” said Shauna Hatch, young women leader for the Chattanooga area of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  “Not only is the community making a difference in helping those who might be hungry, but local Chattanoogans are also banning together to help the rising generation strengthen faith in Jesus Christ.” 
 
“Jesus is the Bread of Life, ‘the true bread from heaven’ (John 6:32), the source of ‘everlasting [nourishment]’ (John 4:14).  He bids all to ‘come, follow [Him]’ (Luke 18:22) – to go ‘about doing good’ (Acts 10:38).  We are thankful to be part of a community that goes about doing good and we especially thank Anita and Janice for making the Snack Pack Ministry possible.  We also thank the East Brainerd Church of Christ for hosting this event, and we look forward to doing more good together,” Ms.
Hatch said.
 
This Sunday at 6 p.m., The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host a Face-to-Face event with Apostle Gerrit W. Gong for children and youth (ages seven-18), parents and leaders.  The event will focus on the 2020 Children and Youth effort to help all grow more like Christ.  All, including those in the greater Chattanooga area, are invited to tune in and participate at ChurchofJesusChrist.org, BYUtv, You Tube, or The Church Facebook page.
