Decatur Cares 2014 Kicks Off

Once again the Decatur Community comes together to love our children and fight hunger. Tomorrow Night, Tuesday, June 3rd at 6:30pm will be the Kick Off Rally where all those accepted into the Summer Feeding Program will meet for orientation, food and fun. This year has already enrolled the limit of families with 277 children who will receive food every Tuesday from 10-11am at the Learning Ladder next to the DISD Administration building.

This ministry is staffed by volunteers who serve on the board under WARM and volunteers from the community churches and businesses who come weekly to pick up food, pack it and distribute it to about 100 families. The program runs for 11 weeks in the summer and begins with the Kick Off on June 3rd and ends with a Celebration Event in the Family Life Center of First Baptist Church Decatur on August 19th.

Decatur Cares is funded by donations from gracious individuals, churches, ministries and businesses in the Decatur Community. It received the 2012 Business Excellence Award for Community Effort and has been an example of the love and care this great community has for everyone who lives here.
