VIDEO of the WEEK

While summer often means sleeping in or planning your next getaway, many of your neighbors are wondering how they will feed their children lunch today. During school, a free lunch meal doesn’t come out of the sparse family budget. That’s when MUST Ministries steps in with the Summer Lunch Program and brings the whole community together to help those in need. With countless, compassionate volunteers, MUST provides a sack lunch each summer weekday to thousands of children in eight counties. Since MUST can’t do it alone, the generosity of our communities makes it possible.
