Beckley Elementary is blessed to have First Baptist Church provide backpacks of food to many of our students. Each Friday, these students are individually called to the office and their backpack is given to them in a discreet manner so as not to call attention to their situation. They are always so gracious about accepting their backpack. Many of them say “thank you” with a genuine smile on their face. It is a special ministry that you provide to these children. As a school, we are grateful that you are able and willing to do this.
We love our students and want the best for them. By providing the backpacks with food, you are helping to provide them with something many people take for granted: food. Thank you again for your continued support of our students!

We will be collecting 18 oz. jars of peanut butter (plastic of course) for the month of March. Donations can be left on the back counter in the kitchen.
