Hello, Friends of Ruth’s Harvest Gettysburg
RE: 2019 Annual Food Drive
Your Help is Needed for Bag Distribution!
On the second Sunday in September, volunteers will collect food from neighborhoods of the Gettysburg Area School District. Where we need your help is getting bags out on nearly 3000 doorsteps of GASD homes. Please consider volunteering to put brown paper bags for the food drive in a local neighborhood. Click below to commit to a neighborhood (small, medium or large). Bags should ideally be distributed at your convenience between the week of Monday, August 26 and no later than Labor Day (Sept 2). To claim a neighborhood, please click here. Once you’ve registered, we’ll contact you about getting bags to you.
If you have any questions, please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your consideration!

Many families in Gettysburg struggle to eat healthy meals and snacks every day. Nearly 50% of all Gettysburg Area School District elementary students are eligible for the federal free and reduced lunch program. Many, but not all of these children don’t have consistent meals available to them on weekends when they are away from the daily breakfasts and lunches provided at school.
Ruth’s Harvest Gettysburg is a free ministry of area churches and organizations that provides healthy meals and snacks to food-insecure children. Backpacks of meals are provided to children in the Gettysburg Area School District on weekends.
Volunteer teams gather food weekly, fill backpacks, and the schools provide these to the children on Friday afternoon. After the weekend, children return the empty bags to the school and the process starts over.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
