It is absolutely amazing that for our local school children, summer break will end in one short week. Wickenburg Unified School District has moved to a four-day school week. This they say will help save money by operating only 4 Days a week. Think School Busses, Custodians, Food Service Workers, and other things. It will also make it easier to recruit teachers from Surprise and beyond because they will only need to drive 4 days. However, this change does not come without problems. Working parents may need to find child care for Friday! And, those students that depend on free and reduced price breakfast and lunch will now have three day weekends with uncertain food supplies. So, we will help. Once again, we will join with Wickenburg Elk’s Lodge and Wickenburg Community Hospital to provide supplemental weekend food. Please open your hearts as we work to help Wickenburg food insecure children. For your convenience, a list of needed items is below. Bins and baskets are empty and waiting for your generous donations.
Have a great week and please stay cool!

Once a month Deacon Deb and her husband, Dave prepare the main dish for lunch after church. Members provide the side dishes. Then, after church, we all enjoy lunch together. Donations are accepted but not required. ALL of the donations collected are sent to the Community Action Partnership to be used to provide needed items for their Food Bank. Our donations have been significant and appreciated.
