Perry Packers Start Packing

September is here, school has started and we are excited to start our Backpack Ministry again! We have changed our packing day to WEDNESDAY’S AT 6:00 PM. Food items for September are cans of pasta and breakfast items, such as pop tarts, granola bars, individual cereal boxes, shelf milk.

Come join us on Wednesday evenings to pack a backpack for our community students in need. It doesn’t take long to pack and we have great fellowship. As always, thank you, hearts of Perry.



Perry Packers Summer Update

 S is for summer, right? Of course! But it’s also for STOCKING our back-pack shelves. We finished the 2014-2015 school year with 26 students and we will continue to serve one child over the summer with week-end food.

Below is a list of donation items that will need to be replenished during the summer. You may donate anything of your choosing throughout the summer. Trust me, it will be used. Also, remember we use the plastic shopping bags for packing, so bring all you have!

I continue to be in awe over your support for this ministry and I thank God for all of you.
