Trinity Lutheran Church, Pell Lake, Wis., “adopted” an elementary school at the end of 2008.
Proceeds from its annual turkey dinner went to families via the Star Center Elementary School.
“Nearly half [our] students are eligible for lunch assistance due to family financial difficulties,” said Principal Betsy Schroeder.
Tom De Groot, the church’s director of discipleship, said, “Star Center is more connected to needy families in our community than any other organization [so] we’re excited to partner with them to be Jesus with skin on.”
