M.U.S.T. Ministries Summer Lunch Program brings the whole community together to help those in need. Volunteers provide a sack lunch each summer weekday to thousands of children.
MUST can use volunteers who make neighborhood deliveries, make the sack lunches, check and pack the bags, donate money and collect supplies. Donations also make the Summer Lunch program a success.
Arndt added, “We run for food, the community, and M.U.S.T. I hope all race participants realize what an impact they had on our community. Because of them, we are able to provide meals to our children in need.”
