Well, summer is over and school is back in session again. This year we are starting out with 15 backpacks with more to be added in the coming weeks. These children live in poverty and sometimes healthy food is scarce and that’s why this program is so vital. We have been blessed with many, many donations. Several weeks ago the Future Farmers of America donated over 1,300 “goodie bags” which contained cereal, fruit cups, a small can of pasta with meat, pudding and a packet of powdered milk. This will go a long, long way in helping these children. Your donations of food and money have also been very generous and for that we thank you.
For the month of September we will be collecting cans of Vienna sausages. These can be left on the back counter in the kitchen. Please keep this program in your prayers as we continue to reach out to children and their families in need.
