This Sunday will be our Missions Sunday. We will be receive an offering to help support our Jet Packs program that helps Marvin Wright Elementary School.
The JetPack Project is a backpack program providing nutritious, non-perishable food for the weekend to eligible children of food-deficient households. To be eligible, a child must be on his/her school’s free or reduced lunch program.
Across the U.S., there are over 2,200 backpack food programs serving more than 90,000 children each year. Unfortunately, the numbers of food-deficient households are far greater. Marvin Wright Elementary is just one of the schools in our area to implement a program of this kind.
All the funds from this Mission Offering will be going directly towards the yearly cost to purchase the food for our sponsored school.
