March and April are the months that we participate in the Feinstein $1million Food Challenge.  Last year we collected a total  of 313 food items in those months and we hope to exceed that this year.  Read the column to the left for more information.
Can you help us?  The Tuesday Tutoring program is thriving and we have decided to continue the program into the 2013-14 school year.  But we need to find some new sources of funding.  The program costs about $6000 to run for the school year- with most of that being paid as compensation to the tutors.  If anyone has an idea about places that might be interested in funding this program  (wholly or partially), please contact the vicar.
