1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
What we do
Campbell Chapel Free Will Baptist Church began a Backpack Buddies program in 2012. The program provides food for children with limited access to food on the weekend throughout the school term.
Currently, we are providing food for 309 children in the following school districts:
Food is placed in the child's backpack on Friday to take home for the weekend. The foods provided are ready to eat or are easily prepared. Listed below are some examples we are currently sending home. When donating please make sure all items are individually wrapped.
Some may wonder about the costs involved for this program. It costs an average of $2.50 per child each week. As one might expect, this does add up quickly, with 309 children, to an average of $772.50 each week. This does not include children added into the Backpack Buddy Program throughout the school year.
