During the school year many children do not have enough food to eat on the weekend. One local teacher noticed children hiding food in the lunchroom so they could have food to eat on the weekend. Each week volunteers at Hiland Park prepare hundred of “backpacks” full of food for children in need. These backpacks are then distributed throughout the county. The backpack ministry exists to show the love of Christ through meeting physical needs.
You can help by packing the bags on Tuesday mornings in the College House or you can pick up a Blessings in a Backpack envelope at the Missions Table and give to this wonderful ministry!
