The Backpack Challenge
In the month of September, the church family at Calvary Baptist was challenge to contribute 5000 food items for the Franklin Elementary Backpack program, an outreach the provides nutritious food to children from food-insecure families during the weekend when they don’t have access to school lunches. We’re happy to report that as of Sunday, September 28, the congregation had donated 6825 food items, which far surpasses our goal. This total doesn’t include the items that will be purchased with additional designated gifts and with almost $1400 that our youth raised through their Car Wash and Yard Sale on Saturday, September 27. Thanks to everyone who helped us share this “act of blessing” with children and families right here in our neighborhood!
