Backpack Program

Newberg First United Methodist Church provides bread, jam and peanut butter for each week to approximately 30 families at Mabel Rush Elementary School. Generous support from Love Inc and Franz Bakery help us purchase this food each week. Our church has a fabulous group of ladies who bag up the food and deliver the bags to Mabel Rush.

If you would like to help as a volunteer, please speak with Marilyn Davis-Wernli or Yvonne Hall. If you would like to contribute to this ministry, please drop your check into the Offering Plate on Sundays, marked for Mabel Rush Food Ministry, or give to the Secretary in the office.

Peanut Butter and Grocery Bags Needed

Mabel Rush Elementary School starts the 2017/2018 school year on September 5th and the Backpack Program will resume late September. The program needs contributions of 16 ounce jars of smooth peanut butter and plastic grocery bags. Please bring donations to the church.
