Packanack Community Church Hosts ‘Poor Kids’ Discussion, Diaper Collection

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the U.S. lives in families in poverty?

The Community Outreach Team from The Packanack Community Church will discuss childhood poverty after worship on May 6 at 11 a.m.

Clips from the PBS documentary “Poor Kids” will be shown. Participants will learn more about the effects of poverty on children, and how to help.

The presentation is open to all.

In conjunction with this discussion, diapers and formula are being collected for distribution locally through the Wayne Interfaith Network and the Father English Center in Paterson. Donations may be brought to the church office Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Sundays, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. through Mother’s Day.
