Pudding Cups for Bluejay Backpacks!
This is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program, so each month 75 sets of 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will be helping to supply this food. EKLC is taking on PUDDING! We need 75 pudding cups each month through May. Please consider donating pudding (nonperishable) or money so that we can support this initiative. You can bring your pudding to church and leave it in the food pantry box.  Money can be tagged with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

EKLC Online Giving
EKLC now has online giving! You may make a secure offering/donation to EKLC by following the directions on the GIVE PLUS card in the Church pews. On the back of this card are directions.
