Sheridan Story Weekend Food Program, Fridays at 9 am or 11 am
Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church in conjunction with Sheridan Story distribute weekend food bags to kids in need at Bryn Mawr and Anwatin Schools. Weekends can be a challenging time for kids who benefit from the free breakfast and lunch the school provides during the week. Every Friday we need 4 volunteers at Bryn Mawr and 2 at Anwatin to spend up to an hour placing food bags in student’s backpacks. The bags weigh between 3-5 pounds and are prepacked and stored on dollies that can be rolled through the school. More information and sign up here
