FOR Our Kids

FOR Our Kids logo

At St. Paul UMC we're FOR our community and FOR our kids. We partner with schools to support students (and teachers!) in meaningful ways throughout the year.


Our after school program offers free tutoring, mentoring, dinner, and fun activities to Largo Middle School students on Tuesdays. Find out more.


Every week we pack meals for middle schoolers to ensure chronically hungry children have something to eat on the weekends when school lunch isn't available. 

We are currently collecting the following items for Pack-a-Sack:

  • Boxes of instant oatmeal in individual envelopes 
  • Kraft mac & cheese in individual cups
  • Canned beef & macaroni
  • Canned chili
  • Knorr rice or pasta envelopes

Supply Drives

This year we're working directly with Frontier Elementary to provide needed school supplies and with Ponce De Leon Elementary to help provide uniforms. Working with the schools directly allows us to reach more kids and provide exactly what they need.

School Events

We plan to attend and help with school events throughout the year such as back to school events, open houses, STEM nights, meet the teacher and more. These events give us a chance to help the schools, and introduce St. Paul and our ministries to new families. 

Teacher and Staff Appreciation

We're FOR our schools and FOR our teachers! During teacher appreciation week, we provide treats, cards and other tokens of thanks to let staff know we're grateful for all they do.

Students being tutored at Jumpstart



Our after school program for middle school kids depends on volunteers. High school students serve as tutors. We also need adults to:

  • Supervise tutoring and games
  • Help with cooking and serving
  • Mentor students

Visit our Jumpstart Volunteers page for more info or to sign up to help! 



Fill out the form below to let us know you're interested in being on the FOR Our Kids Team. We need volunteers to help with school events, with organizing and delivering school supplies, with our after school program and with putting together and delivering teacher appreciation gifts next year. You don't need to serve in all areas to be on the team!
