“Pack-A-Sack” is a community outreach program designed to help address the problem of chronic hunger among elementary-age children in our public schools. This has been estimated to be approximately 15% of all children eligible for free lunches in Pinellas County. “Pack-A-Sack” works with selected Title 1 schools to identify children who exhibit behaviors that indicate chronic hunger, their learning abilities. “Pack-A-Sack” provides enough food to sustain them over the weekend. Volunteers from PHUMC collect these food items, package them in a bag, and deliver them to the public school we are assigned. It costs approximately $160 per student per academic year, which breaks down to approximately $4 per child per week.

Walk for Freedom

Thank you to all of our sponsors for the 2020 Walk for Freedom that was held on February 1, 2020! The walk-a-thon was a time to join together for fun, fellowship, and exercise in support of Bridging Freedom. This faith-based organization is doing amazing work in its mission to combat domestic minor sex-trafficking by bringing restoration to those rescued and victim prevention to those they reach with their message.To see pictures of this past event visit us on Facebook at Palm Harbor United Methodist Church.
