The Sunrise UMC, First UMC and Fuquay-Varina UMC churches in Fairway District are partnered with Lincoln Heights Elementary School around their “Read & Feed” program and other support services. Each week, the “Read & Feed” program reaches 27 children; feeds 80 persons a free meal; provides “parent enrichment” during the “tutoring time” with programming primarily provided by the LHES staff and/or community leaders; and, thus far has involved over 73 adult volunteers this school year. The tutoring program involves 27 volunteer tutors. Leftover supper food is packaged for families, usually providing another meal to enjoy at home. Children receive 3 free books each week to help build home libraries and are EAGER to come early!!! There is an abundance of energy, focus, and JOY in sharing throughout the traditional school year with this incredible church and community partnership!
