Grace Methodist Church is the sponsor of Troop and Pack 205. One of
the many outreach ministries that Grace Methodist Church participates
in is Helping Hand. Helping Hand provides meals for residents of York
PA on weekends. Many different churches are involved to cover all the
dates. Grace Methodist Church cooks, packages and delivers the food on
the third Sunday of each month. Troop 205 Parents and Scouts help each
month with Helping Hand. This May, Troop 205 was asked to be the primary
group to help with Helping Hand. So, on May 18 several Troop 205 Parents
and Scouts cooked, packaged, packed the trucks, distributed the food to
many York PA residents, had some fun, returned and cleaned up.
The Prep includes cooking the beefy macaroni, green beans,
and garlic bread. Also Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,
fruit, lemonade are made, donated baked goods are packaged.
After a prayer by Pastor Jeff, the food line is set up
and ready to hand out food.
On the second stop, Pastor Jeff played with several of the
local children. This included some nerf football and jumping
rope. Our kids...er Rich and Rohit also played.
