Thank you for your contributions of $559 to the
Board of Missions Backpack Spotlight Items:
Keep in mind that we do continue to help feed our school-age kids over the summer months. These kids “get to” eat during the school year because of the “free/reduced priced” school lunches that they qualify for, so when school is not in session, then what? That is why the Bd of Missions has undertaken this project. It takes a community to raise a child. Thank you for what you can, and do, contribute.
