RLC’s Weekender Backpack Ministry continues packing food – and hope – this spring! Along with the usual spring break food bags containing extra food, the Weekender team was also able to prepare and send special Easter bags home with students prior to the beginning of spring break.
Students returned to in-person learning in January, so after getting seven weeks worth of supplemental food to students before they went virtual in November, the Weekender team is now back to packing bags of food for students each week.
Resurrection is hosting our third Pack Away Hunger packing event in Resurrection Hall on Saturday, Jan. 23, 10 – 11:30 a.m. Packing is setup with ample distancing between workstations, and all volunteers must wear a mask, hairnet, and gloves. There are 16 volunteer spots available, and sign-up by Thursday, Jan. 21.
A team of people gathered Wednesday, Nov. 11 to pack 1,900+ bags to distribute over seven weeks to students in three local schools. The team worked hard to get all of the bags to the students before they left school, and are proud kids also received a goodie bag with fun stuff, extra food, and a large jar of peanut butter.
