Backpack Ministry

The Backpack Ministry provides school children with a backpack full of food to take home for the weekend. Each week we are delivering 120 backpacks & volunteers are needed! We are in need of volunteers to help fill bags each week and delivery drivers to take the backpacks to the school(s).

The 2022/2023 school year is coming quickly! Time for Back to School & Back to Backpack Ministry!!!
Although the calendar and the weather person would not agree, summer will be over soon!!
Back to school and back to Backpack Ministry.
Volunteers will be needed to fill bags with food and to deliver those bags to Ruth Barron Elementary School. For a number of years we have been blessed with faithful volunteers. Any of our members that also have a servant heart, let me know.

At this time the grocery list remains the same as in past years:

Canned Pasta with Meat

Chicken Noodle Soup

Healthy Choice Soup Variety Pack

Vienna Sausages

Canned Chicken

Canned Tuna

Individual Packets of Macaroni’n Cheese

Cold Cereal



Peanut Butter Crackers.

Donations of these food items and cash are thankfully accepted. Looking forward to providing food to God’s little ones.
Please call Marie Davis 512.251.2508 or text 512.659.3893 to volunteer or if you have questions.

Please keep the Backpack Ministry in your prayers: for our volunteers, our generous supporters & especially our families in need. The Backpack Ministry is grateful for financial donations that allow us to continue to serve our students. Go to the Support Our Mission to make a donation online.
