Making sure our 27 backpack students at Beckley Elementary School get their backpacks during the winter months is sometimes a challenge. The backpacking teams do their best to deliver to the children before school is closed for snow days but Mother Nature just does not always cooperate.
Our Backpack Ministry was blessed with a grant of $252.00 from Woodforest Charitable Foundation. The grant is to be used through the Mountaineer Food Bank which offers items we can order at a fraction of the price they cost in stores. We are very grateful for this gift and thank God for agencies that join us to fight childhood hunger.
Please continue to pray for our Backpack Ministry and the children that are being fed.
For the month of February please bring cans of chili with beans.
