Pay-It-Forward Frontline is a new way to show appreciation for local frontline workers, while also supporting the local economy through Souderton/Telford restaurants during a time of uncertainty.
The SMC Care Fund has seeded this program in four local restaurants and invites SMC frontline workers to be among the first to enjoy a meal of appreciation! We hope this initiative will grow and bless many. If you would like to participate as a donor or to receive an appreciation meal, see details here and follow and share the Facebook page here.
Children participating in the Bean Bag Food Program receive much needed breakfasts, lunches and the weekend "Bean Bag" backpacks containing breakfast, lunch and snack items.
