Addressing the need for diabetic nutritional support... We are now implementing a special program to address the nutritional needs of our Fayette County population that has been impacted by type 2 diabetes and low-quality nutrition. We do this by supplying some sugar-free items and diabetic food alternative choices from our pantry and fresh vegetables from local gardens.
Addressing the need for better access to education...We are in need of donors for providing scholarships for college education opportunities to graduates of the Fayette-Ware High School. Currently we have one perpetual scholarship that has been funded and we are currently seeking additional donors to expand our scholarship offerings to allow more students the opportunity for self-development through higher education. Providing this support will have positive & lasting economic impact on these students and their families for generations to come.
Addressing the need for better access to computers for education...We are also seeking donors and sponsors to provide new computers for college bound students who are served by our Project Outreach programs.
Please contact us directly and let us know you are interested in learning more about how you can support Project Outreach.
These are 'Save The Dates"! Special thanks to those who help with this ministry!

Children will be at home for the summer and will therefore not be receiving breakfast and lunch at school. Please donate snack crackers, peanut butter, canned fruit (no-sugar added), mac & cheese, breakfast bars, nuts, popcorn, fruit juice, cheese, and cracker packs, cereal (low sugar), and lots of fresh fruit. Monetary donations or gift cards are needed to buy fruit.

When your gardens begin producing, remember fresh vegetables would benefit the diets of all our guests, especially children. Maybe you could plant a few extra rows with Project Outreach in mind? Thank you!!
