Covid19 update - Friends Day Food Pantry

Coldwater will have its Food Pantry open on the second and fourth Saturdays from 10:30 am to 2 p.m. and by appointment during the week. Until further notice, we will NOT serve a meal. The clothes closet will NOT be open. 

Food distribution will begin at 10:30 am on these two Saturdays each month and procedures will be modified for safety. We also will still deliver groceries to our homebound on these two Saturdays each month.

Our goal is to allow those in need of groceries access to the food pantry but to keep the potential for exposure to illness to a minimum. 


We do ask that, if you are ill or have been exposed to someone who is ill, you do not come on Saturday to receive groceries or volunteer. If you need groceries, please call our office when you are feeling better and we will arrange an appointment for you to receive them as soon as possible. Volunteers can email volunteers@coldwater.me to reschedule for another pantry day.

In an effort to keep everyone visiting the food pantry and all our volunteers safe, we may ask anyone who appears to be sick to exit the building. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience and wish everyone good health.

Your Friends At Coldwater


Covid19 Update- League of Smiles

League of Smiles 2020

League of Smiles canceled for 2020
We are sad to announce we have to cancel the League of Smiles T-Ball for this summer. Usually it starts in mid-May and runs through June. Unfortunately, we are afraid our little sluggers might not be safe if we tried to maintain that schedule. We have decided not to move it to later in the summer because of the heat.

Coldwater and "C" You In the Major Leagues will meet over the next year to talk about some exciting new additions to the program. We plan to bring League of Smiles back in 2021 even stronger than before.

We will miss all of the families who have returned year after year and are sorry to miss the opportunity to meet more new families this year.

Have a wonderful spring playing backyard baseball at your own homes until we can get back to normal.

Covid19 Update - Out4Others

 Out4Others Youth Training Program Canceled for Summer 2020

We regret that we have to cancel our 2020 Out4Others youth volunteer training program for this summer. Unfortunately, many of the places where our students would normally volunteer are closed or are volunteer situations where distancing would be difficult. We do not know when these places will resume normal activity and be open to volunteers, so we are forced to make this difficult decision. We look forward to offering this volunteer experience again to 5th through 8th graders in summer 2021. Anyone looking for more individualized volunteer experiences can contact us at director@coldwater.me or 816-786-0758 regarding our other programs. Some food distribution programs will be continued this summer but most likely in a different format that requires an increased number of volunteers in more individualized roles. Other opportunities may also become available later in the summer so check back with us later for more information about these. Have a wonderful summer and stay safe.
