Bills Backpack Blessings is an ongoing ministry to help fed students at Newell and Grier Elementary School. Each week bags of nonperishable food are packed and distributed to a total of 50 students identified by the school as having little or nothing to eat on the weekends. Your help is needed to ensure these children are fed! Below is a list of all the items that are needed. Monetary donations are also accepted.
Be a Bill's Backpack Blessings Buddy!
Your contribution of $250 a year, payable weekly, monthly, or as one donation, will feed a homeless child at Newell Elementary or Grier Elementary each weekend for the remainder of this school year and the fall semester of next year.
Won't you consider helping us meet the basic needs of these children? Someone from the Bill's Backpack Blessing Team will be at a table in the Gathering Area after worship on Sunday to get you connected. You can also contact Chris Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This ministry is named in memory of Bill Waddington who helped start our
backpack program with Newell Elementary.
