We have just completed making the Weekend Backpack bags for the 2017-2018 School year! They will be delivered in the next two weeks. Thank you for your faithful donations to this Ministry.
With your generosity in caring for these children, we were able to provide 1,213 Weekend Backpack Bags to the 32 students from food-insufficient homes during this school year. Our Ministry is grateful for each and every food donation you have provided. We have just completed an inventory of our pantry shelves to determine exactly how many of each item we will need in order to prepare the remaining 126 bags required to be filled and delivered this current school year. Thank you for your generosity.
Please remember that while the Backpack Ministry will not be providing meals for students during the summer, the St. Rose Food Pantry will continue to provide food for Families in need of assistance. They provided 32 Food Bags just last week! In addition, Murfreesboro City Schools Summer Feeding Program (May 29 thru Jul 27) will feed any child 18 and under breakfast and lunch for free. Hunger does not take a summer break! Please donate any of the items on their list as you can.
