Feed The Children 2011

Posted by Donald Addison on January 23, 2011 at 11:48 AM Comments comments (0)

January 20, 2011 we were able to collaborate with Feed The Children, international hunger relief organization and distribute 1200 boxes of food to 400 families. Each family received a 25-pound box of food, a 10-pound box of personal care items and a box of Avon products. The boxes were designed to help a family for up to one week.

New Orleans Saint’s Head Coach Sean Payton and his family’s Payton’s Play It Forward Foundation  sponsored the event. Payton’s Play It Forward Foundation is sponsoring a total of 18 semi tractor-trailers of food and essentials to help families and children in need throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama this year.

"We are so thankful to Coach Sean Payton and Payton’s Play It Forward Foundation for helping to provide food and essentials to so many families in need this year'' said Pastor Donald Addison

Donors Appreciation

Each year, with the help of our community, The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry Community provides children with school supplies.

 

Sometimes the only difference between an A+ student and a failing student is having basic supplies to do homework and participate in class. Because 81% of the children served by The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry live on a family income of less than $14,000 annually, after the most basic of needs of the family are met, school supplies may not fit into that budget.

 

In September The Vineyard and Dollar General  joined together in the Back 2 School 2010 Giveaway. We were able to supply children in the community with much need school supplies such as:

 

■3 Ring Binders

■Backpacks*

■Compasses

■Colored Pencils

■Construction Paper*

■Dividers*

■Rulers*

■Spiral Notebooks

■Writing Tablets*

■Folders*

■Glue

■Glue Sticks

■Manila Paper

■Markers

■Notebook Paper

■Pencil Bags

■Scissors*

■Watercolor

 

With the help of First Book  we were able to give each child two to three free books during the giveaway.Thanks to the generous support of Random House Children’s Books. The nationwide goal is to read with kids for 10 minutes a day, but first you need a book!

Because of Sponsors like First Book our Raising Readers Program has been a Success.

 

Thank you Dollar General, First Book,and those in the community that made donations.

Toys For Tots

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / URGENT

The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry Toys for Tots Drive

September 20th, 2010 | Greenville, MS

 

The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry, a faith based, 501c3, Nonprofit organization, located in Greenville MS that distributes food, clothing and other necessities to individuals, children and families that lack these essentials due to, poverty, no/limited income, layoffs, disabilities, unexpected bills, homelessness, domestic violence or any other adverse situation.

 

The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry is pleased to announce our second year of being a participant of Toys for Tots. “Our goal in 2010 is to collect enough toys for 1,000 children. Last year approximately 650 children in the area received toys through our program at The Vineyard New Outreach Ministry. The toys go to families in need, Says Pastor Donald Addison, Director". The gift of a shiny new toy – something that most children take for granted – means to a needy child that someone cares, that he/she hasn’t been forgotten, that Christmas hasn’t passed him/her by.

 

“The Outreach Center is very proud of the generosity of its volunteers, community spirit and is delighted that we can help make the holiday season a happy one for children in need,” said Minister Jerry Shelton.

 

Members of the community drop new or used, unwrapped toys in collection boxes, positioned in local businesses – this is where you come in. If you are a local business, you are an important member of the community. We are asking that you allow us to put a box in your place of business, so that members of the community can drop off toys. Coordinators pick up these toys and store them in central warehouses where the toys are sorted by age and gender for the special day. For more information contact Donald Addison at 662-537-4903 or 662-820-6470.

 

Greenville Toys for Tots Drive Begins September 20th 2010 through December 20th, 2010

 

Remember that together we can make a difference
