Summer Lunch Program

This summer we are partnering again with MUST Ministries to help feed children in their Summer Lunch Program. There are thousands of children during the summer who will not get fed without the help that MUST Ministries provides. With countless work hours, volunteers, and donations; each day, Must Ministries will provide sack lunches to thousands of children in eight different counties.

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, just feed one” - Mother Teresa

We encourage our customers, neighbors and friends to participate in positively impacting those in need. By donating your time, supplies or by providing a monetary donation to MUST Ministries; we can help thousands of children have a meal that they otherwise might not have had. Please listen to Ali Mae’s story and meet just one of the children who are in need of assistance.

The staff at Casteel Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical are volunteering this summer to help pack hundreds of lunches. We want to bring awareness to MUST Ministries and the number of ways that they help those in our community. They not only provide food for school age children during the Summer Lunch Program; among other things, MUST Ministries also sponsors Friday Book Days where children will receive a donated book along with their lunch. By volunteering time, and hosting several supply and food drives within our company, we hope to make a positive impact in our community. Casteel Cares about our neighbors!

Our first food drive will take place June 8th from 11AM – 1PM at Must Ministries located at:

1407 Cobb Parkway N
Marietta, GA 30062

  • Donate supplies such as jelly, bread, juice boxes, peanut butter, sweet or salty snacks, Ziploc bags, brown paper bags, plastic gloves or individually wrapped cheese
