MATTHEW’S MINISTRY BACKPACK PROGRAM:

Matthew’s Ministry, the organization that distributes food for children at schools on Fridays for the weekend, has 3 pickup days planned this week for students who are a part of the Backpack Program.  “Bags of food will be available at these locations for families to drive up and pick up their children’s food .
We are asking families to pick one site (each week) that works best for their schedule and location. A bag of food will be given for each child in the family.” -Matthew’s Ministry
