Opportunities to Serve
The "Blessings in a Backpack" program helps meet the needs of hungry children in our area. Backpacks will be given to children on Fridays who receive free or reduced lunches and are selected by the school counselor.
The backpacks include six kid friendly meals that are nonperishable & easy to prepare. The children return the backpacks to school on Monday and are refilled by HPBC for the following Friday.
The cost to become a backpack partner is $5.00 a weekend or $20 a month. For only $100 you can send a child home with 6 meals a week from Jan. 14th until the end of school in May.
How can I help? Look for the sponsorship envelopes in our lobby. Feel free to give them to friends or professionals in our community who may be interested in becoming a sponsor. There are also weekly volunteer opportunities as the backpacks are assembled and delivered. You don't have to be a member of Hiland Park in order to help feed hungry kids! Call the church office or contact Tammy firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
