Snack Pack Program - Letcher Community Church is one of the churches in the county doing this program. Since people often ask what we need we thought we would put out a notice here and in the church news letter. Our main needs are: cans of Spaghetti O's, lasagna and soups.  Boxes of instant oatmeal, fruit cups or applesauce, pudding snacks, Little Debbie cakes or other individually wrapped snacks like PB crackers, cheese crackers, Popcorn and drink boxes like HI C fruit drinks, Peanut butter small jars and Ritz type crackers. Your donations help us pack meals for an estimated 20 children that need meals for weekends when patents aren't around. Donations can go to the Letcher Church or contact Tambi Wormstadt.
