BACKPACK BUDDIES

During the summer season, our Backpack Buddies Ministry needs your help by continuing to collect food items.  We ask that you purchase an item or two when you go to the store each week to help maintain a stocked inventory.  

 

During the school year, we partner with Parkview Elementary School by providing weekend backpacks filled with non-perishable items to help sustain at-need students (identified by school staff) over the weekends when meals might otherwise be unavailable.  We have 20 students at this point in need of weekend backpacks.  


You may place items in one of two places:

  1. 1st floor in the shopping cart located outside of the church office
  2. 2nd floor on the tables with the Backpack Buddies banner located in the area right outside of the fellowship hall

While not limited to items listed below, suggested food items are listed below.  For more information, you may contact:
