This Christmas season, we partnered with Perkiomen Valley School District to help support families in need this holiday season through the fourth annual PV Cares Holiday Drive. We collected items to support the Daily Bread Food Pantry and the PV Power Packs program, both of which are serving PV families during the holiday season.
Thanks to everyone who brought in gifts, cards, and cash to help bless kids in the PV School District through the Power Pack program. Way to shine out Jesus’ light at Christmas!

On July 27, 2019, Daybreak-ers participated with a group of 200 volunteers at the Berean Bible Church in Pottstown for two hours to pack meals for children in need. The event is one of many such meal-packing events held across the country. The sponsoring organization is "Feed My Starving Children", fmsc.org
Collectively, at the event, all of us (not just Daybreak) felt great about the results:
...which feeds 144 children one meal each day for a year.
Two more packing shifts were scheduled for the same day... imagine the impact on the children in need!
Check out more photos & videos of the event.
Thanks to everyone who helped! Next year’s date is July 25, 2020. We’ll be there! Save the date on your calendars.
