Blessings in a Backpack - Food Packing
You can make a big impact by giving just one hour or less of your time each week to Blessings in a Backpack!
Each week during the school year, St. John's is providing nutritional snack food items for children at Hendricks Avenue Elementary School who participate in the free or reduced school lunch program. The children are from families who are frequently unable to provide food for their children over the weekend. Our volunteers pack approved food items that are sent home with the children each Friday. Volunteers are always welcome. We are addressing not only child hunger but also the learning gap as children are able to return to school on Monday ready to learn.
To experience our volunteer effort, you may come in May and join other volunteers at 9:15 a.m. in the Hendricks Avenue Elementary School teachers’ lounge. Sign in at the school office and ask to be directed to the teacher lounge across the Hall.
Packing Dates: Thursdays: May 17, 24. Wednesday May 30.
