Christmas for Weekender Backpack Food Ministry

Christmas for Weekender Backpack Food Ministry

The entire RLC congregation is invited help send holiday cheer to the 309 kids served by our Weekender Backpack Food Ministry. This year we will give each kid a decorated bag including cards of prayers or well wishes, a “gift card” for them to use to order books at school and a fun pencil or eraser.

How to help:
Visit the table in the narthex to write some notes or decorate bags between now and Sunday, Dec. 23. While at the table, donate money to sponsor a child’s scholastic book gift card. We would LOVE to be able to give each child $5 to spend on books. Sponsor one child or sponsor 10 – every bit helps!

You can also contribute monetarily through a check or envelope placed in the offering plate or online through our giving portal.┬áPlease designate contributions for “WEEKENDER CHRISTMAS DONATION”.

This ministry continues to make a make an enormous impact on the lives of the kids receiving gifts and food – AND it impacts our Resurrection people as they give of talents and resources. Thank you for your continued support!
