"Neighbourlink Sarnia Lambton is holding it's first annual
"Back to School Snack Drive".
We are asking you to support us in this endeavour.
We are looking specifically for donations of nutritious snacks for Nutrition Breaks (formerly called recess). The education system is teaching children about nutrition in this way. These snacks are expensive and adds to an existing financial burden to those in need in our community.
We would like to be able to assist with the following: pudding cups, juices boxes, nut free granola bars, little packages of cheese and crackers, anything considered nutritious, nut free and prepackaged.
Donations of nutritional snacks can be dropped off at the NeighbourLink office 707 Talford St, Tuesdays' 9am-3pm and Wednesday - Friday 9am-noon or can be dropped off at State Farm 914 Murphy Rd, Unit 8 Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
Thank you for providing children a healthy snack at school.

NeighbourLink Sarnia-Lambton is a network of Christian churches that bridges the needs of individuals in the community with available resources through love in action,educationand advocacy.
NeighbourLink Sarnia-Lambton is a local help line which mobilizes hundreds of volunteers from 25 local churches to work together to respond to the needs of their Lambton County neighbours.
We are currently looking for donations of peanut free school snacks, as well as canned meat, fish, and vegetables.
A bag of dry goods are offered when callers are not eligible to return to any of the local food banks when they call for food assistance.
In these difficult times, many of us have the deep desires to help our neighbours in need by following Christ's command to translate our words of faith into acts of love in his name. However we don't always know how to reach out to people in practical ways. High unemployment, decreasing government funding of social programs, and public resistance to tax increases underline the urgent needs for churches to become the focal points of compassion within our communities. NeighbourLink helps churches identify and mobilize all the resources and gifts that its members can offer to change lives and communities.
