Backpack Ministry Update

We are busy packing food bags for our Backpack Kids at Beckley Elementary School. Our pantry is well stocked and we constantly hunt for healthy food that is reasonably priced. Every week each child receives six meals, two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, a loaf of bread and a bag of snacks.

It won’t be long before we will be shopping for Christmas gifts for the children. A teacher helps each child fill out a wish list for Christmas gifts. We have $100.00 to spend for each child. First, we purchase the clothing needs on the list then buy toys they may want. It is surprising how many nice gifts our volunteers can buy by shopping for bargains.

If you would like to volunteer to shop for one of our children please contact me, Helen Greene, at 304-253-1069. We will start shopping in November.

Thanks to everyone who has donated food, money or prayers for our Backpack Ministry. May God Bless You!

For the month of October please donate hot chocolate packets.
