Our backpack ministry provides food for children in public schools who are likely to go hungry over the weekends when school is not in session.  The food is purchased, packaged and delivered to the school by church members. If you would like volunteer to help, please call 304-877-9191. Donations clearly marked “Backpack Ministry” should be mailed to:

We like to give the children fresh fruit and vegetables when they are available.

As we move toward the end of the school year, the number of students we serve has doubled and the community has gotten behind us.  We served almost a hundred families at our Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser.

Our first meals were provided to  Mount Hope Elementary School on November 19, 2015.  The children were selected for the program by officials at Mt. Hope Elementary to protect the children’s privacy.
