P.A.T.S. The Pantry at the Sanctuary , is a charitable organisation under the umbrella of the Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C.) Watford. Over the past 4 years we have been assisting families in Hertfordshire who find themselves in a temporary crisis and difficult financial circumstances for various reasons, such as unemployment, bereavement, low income to name a few and therefore unable to sufficiently feed their families. The families are nominated through government agencies, schools and other family organisations to get help from P.A.T.S.
1 in 5 children go hungry every day that's why P.A.T.S. remained vigilant through the pandemic.
The purpose of P.A.T.S. is to see that these children through all the school holidays have the essential food to keep them healthy.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
When you set up a regular donation to P.A.T.S. you become part of a team working to change the lives and mindset of our children and future leaders. A child's diet has a great impact on brain activity and behaviour.
We receive no funding from any outside sources we rely completely on voluntary donations like yours.
Through the holidays when there are no breakfast clubs and no free school meals, your donations will help with the purchase of essentials for these families.
Please give what you can via our donation page
The testimonies from the families have been life changing. Many have felt undeserved but grateful and, some though in need have shared their deliveries with a neighbour.
We pray that we are in the will of God as Matthew 25:31-46, and that not only their circumstances change but their lives through accepting Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
