KindCraft’s Sack Lunch Packaging Party for Metro Lutheran Ministry

January 24 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm

We are partnering with Metro Lutheran Ministry to support their sack lunch program. MLM distributes over 700 sack lunches a MONTH between their 3 locations in Midtown, Wyandotte and the Northland. That is over 10,000 a year! Who receives a sack lunch? Those looking for employment in MLM’s Learning to Earning job assistance centers as well as clients and walk-ins who are in need of services or emergency assistance.

To make this event a success we need help from the community. Do you belong to a church, school, business, gym, or other community group that might want to be a collection site? We need groups to collect specific lunch items for the sacks. You can contribute 20 items or 200 items! It’s totally up to you and every little bit helps.

All items collected will need to be dropped off to Sunnyside Elementary School in Olathe on Wednesday, January 24, between 4:00 and 5:00 pm.

The event itself will take place in shifts. The first shift will run from 4:00-5:00 pm and will involve set up. If you choose to sign up for this time, your family will help bring items into the buidling and help sort them on the tables.

Register HERE if your family would like to help with the 1st shift to set up.

The second shift will be the actual “event” itself. We will talk about WHAT we are doing and WHY we are doing it. Then families will fill sack lunches in assembly line fashion.

Register HERE if your family would like to assemble lunch sacks.

The third shift will be loading and cleaning up. Lunches will be stored in tubs that will need to be brought to MLM on Thursday January 25. Have a pick up truck? We need you!

Register HERE if your family would like to help with clean up and loading.

KindCraft has over 1300 members. If every member contributed the items needed for ONE lunch sack, we could assemble almost 2 months worth of lunches for MLM.
