Kids prepare dinner for the Panama City Rescue Mission

Outside the Box – Kate Estes On Thursday, the Panama City Renaissance School prepared and donated 155 sack lunches to the Panama City Rescue Mission.  The Mission feeds more than 150 men, women and children each day. The PCRS parents donated all of the food, which included 20 loaves of bread, 10 large packs of sandwich meat, 200 apples and bananas, 200 bags of chips and other snacks, 10 large packs of cookies, and a box full of other food items.  Several of the moms and students made 155 sandwiches, and the students in the After School Enrichment Program packed all of the lunches.  The kids set up an assembly-line, where each child would take a bag and put an item from each of 5 boxes inside.  They finished packing the lunches in 45 minutes!  The students were amazed to learn that there are people in our community who do not have enough food to eat.  They were excited to be helping to feed hungry people and were so generous.  One student stated that he thought everyone in Panama City who has extra food should give to the Mission. If you’ve never seen 155 sack lunches (I know I hadn’t), they filled up 8 large boxes!  The Mission residents and staff were so gracious and grateful.  I had so many people come by to thank the school and shake my hand.  It was a wonderful experience for all involved.  The Mission is looking forward to partnering with PCRS for another community service project in the...
