SOS: Support Our Students

For the past five years the Shared Community Mission Group has expanded upon a program started at the First Congregational-UCC. Working together they have been able to help more children whose families are unable to purchase the items that their children need for school.

Together they help children get ready to learn. Member congregations and others from the community donate school supplies or money to purchase school supplies. They set up a large “school store” where children are invited, accompanied by their parents and a church volunteer, to select a new backpack and needed supplies that are listed on their schools’ required supplies list. Community agencies staff a resource area so that families can learn about other helpful free programs in our community.

SHARED COMMUNITY MISSION GROUP

The Shared Community Mission Group is an ecumenical group of lay and clergy volunteers who represent ten different churches in Watertown. They believe they can accomplish more together by combining the blessings of volunteers, talents and money than any one church can do alone.

This community-based volunteer group has focused our collective efforts on two main projects that provide assistance to low income families free of Charge: “SOS: Support Our Students” and “Weekend Food to Go and Grow”

Weekend Food to Go and Grow

This program provides a weekly duffel bag of nutritious food for hungry kindergarten children and their families over the weekend when free school breakfasts and lunches are not available. Each bag includes: canned fruit, canned vegetables, entrée item, quality protein, condensed soup or pasta, breakfast foods, fresh fruit or vegetables, a coupon for a gallon of milk, bread or crackers twice a month. Special holiday meals and occasional treats are also provided.

This program started with a pilot program at Douglas Elementary School in 2012. Over the past five years it has expanded to include all Watertown Public Schools. Families from Good Shepherd Lutheran School and Watertown Catholic Schools are also invited to participate. We are most grateful to our partner, the Watertown Unified School District, for providing food storage and bag packing space as well as assistance with bag distribution.

During the initial six years of the program, through June 2017, participating congregations and community donors have invested $78, 980.00 to send home 4,942 food bags. This investment in the future of our children helped to provide 13,035 weekends when a child had enough food to eat. Over six years, the average cost of the food bags is $16.00.
