Covenant Church coordinates and provides for the Blessings in a Backpack program at LaGrange Elementary School. Each week, 115 students with food insecurity receive a nutritious bag of food to take home on the weekend. The bag includes two proteins, fruits, cereals, and a healthy snack. This assures that kids have something to eat over the weekend at their home. For some kids, this is truly a blessing in a backpack.
This year, we aim to raise $16,500 to purchase the food items. We have almost reached our goal through the generosity of the people of Covenant, other local ministries, generous individuals in the community, and grant money. A promised gift of $1,500 means we have reached our goal and fulfilled our need for the 2023 – 2024 school year. Any other financial gifts will be used for the subsequent school year. Thanks for your generosity!
But our work is not done! More than 450 bags must be prepared for the children each month. The bags are prepared at LaGrange Elementary School at 2:45 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. Come and help this vital ministry and the children of our community.
