Get Involved in The Sheridan Story

Innové winning Protégé The Sheridan Story has become a full mission partner of Colonial Church. The Sheridan Story’s mission is to feed hungry children, compelled into action by Jesus’ model of service and sacrifice.

The Sheridan Story handles all the back-end logistics, which allows our congregation the opportunity to provide ministry to the students at Bethune Elementary, a school where 99.2% of the students receive free or reduced lunch and over 30% of the students our homeless or highly mobile. It’s important and meaningful work, and we are thankful we have the opportunity to partner in this way.

For the 2014-2015 school year, Colonial will serve Bethune’s Kindergarten and 1st Grade students, plus 2nd and 3rd grade highly mobile students, a service which contests of placing a bag of food into their backpacks on Friday, so that the students aren’t hungry on the weekends.


There are two primary ways you can get involved:

1. Volunteer on Fridays to place bags of food into the backpacks of students. Each Friday a small team of volunteers travels to Bethune Elementary and guided by a list of names and locker numbers, places a bag of food into students backpacks. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be hands-on and offer practical help at a school where students need an extra presence.

2. Participate in a monthly packing event. Packing events are open to all and are great for families or groups who wish to serve together. A Sheridan Story Packing Event pulls together a group of 50 individuals, working together to create the bags of non-perishable food that will be used at all of Sheridan’s 25 partner school for the entire month. They are great events.
