Students at Lamb Elementary have benefited from the ongoing partnership with Salem First Free Methodist Church in many ways. During remote learning, Salem First Free Methodist Church was able to support our students by delivering food through the Blessings in a Backpack program. 

Salem First Free Methodist Church supports students with school supplies, clothes, food and hygiene supplies. This partnership started with occasional supply drop offs and grew into what it is today where staff and church volunteers work together to support families’ diverse needs. 

Each month, approximately 27 families have food and resources delivered to them from church volunteers, which are able to privately be delivered to families. This program has helped support a culture of care throughout our school while supporting each family with access to needed resources. The opportunity for additional families to access this program is growing as more of our community continues to get involved. 

Salem First Free Methodist Church also helps to connect families to additional resources such as the Boys and Girls Club, Assistance League and other donation partners. Thank you for working with us to connect families with the supplies and support they need.
