The Summer Outreach of Walkersville Area Churches (SOWAC) serves hot lunches to our community’s children every weekday while public schools are on summer break. This program gives the community’s kids a safe, fun place to go and provides a nutritious lunch to help bridge the hunger gap that many of our families face when school is out (and the free-and-reduced lunches are not available through the school cafeteria). SOWAC is able to provide more than 2,000 lunches at two different sites during the summer.
St. Timothy’s works with other area churches to provide volunteer coverage for the summer. Other churches involved include Fredericktowne Baptist, Peace in Christ Lutheran, Sunnyside New Life Community Church, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Walkersville United Methodist Church, Glade United Church of Christ, Community of Christ, Walkersville Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints and Calvary Assembly of God.
