Wellspring Church in Ferguson needs food, monetary donations, volunteers and supplies for activities for older children for their daytime respite/lunch program. You can donate financially through PayPal on their website, or follow updates on their Facebook page or @Faith4Ferguson on Twitter. Currently both FB and Twitter show lists of the supplies that are most needed and where you can drop them off.
Volunteers can assist with food distribution between 11:00-1:00 Thursday and Friday. Locations for distribution are Griffith Elementary, Airport Elementary, Duchesne Elementary, Holman Elementary, and Wedgewood Elementary. Food will be served outside. All you need to do is show up and food services staff will provide you with instructions.
