Easter Meals 2015

Easter BagsLast week, 477 individuals received meals to help them celebrate the blessings of Easter. Clients of Community Lifeline Center and Burks Elementary school were recipients.

Community Lifeline Center’s Executive Director Christine Hockin-Boyd greatly appreciates the members of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in McKinney for their faithful commitment and support both as a Covenant Congregation and for wonderfully demonstrating what serving the community is all about. So do the north Collin County families who received bags. “This was the fifteenth year that St. Peter’s Episcopal Church provided Easter meals for CLC families. What an amazing gift of love and service,” Hockin-Boyd said.

Bags with basic canned goods (ham, green beans, corn, and fruit) were purchased with proceeds of Empty Bowls 2014 McKinney. “The rest of the food for an Easter meal as well as gifts for the family come from the parishioners of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church,” explained Jamie St. Clair, Outreach Coordinator for St. Peter’s. “We are excited to share the joy of the resurrection of our Lord with the families,” said St. Clair.

Empty Bowls 2015 is just a few days away. This year, the event will be held at the MPAC on the Square in McKinney from 5:30 to 7:30 on Thursday, April 16. Participants can, for a small fee, enjoy a delicious bowl of soup donated by local restaurants, choose a one-of-a-kind bowl to take home, and know that they are helping to provide next years’ Easter meals for neighbors.
