The Weekend Backpacks is one of our OIU Life projects. Angie Ashley works at Grace Miller Elementary School and over 1/3 of their students qualify for free/reduced lunch. The school food pack program sends food home on Fridays so that students and their family have at least 3 meals over the weekend. Right now GMES is sending home about 35 backpacks each weekend. If you can contribute any of the following items during the month of December, it would greatly help. Applesauce pouches, Chef Boyardee Microwave meals or cans, small peanut butter [plastic only], small jelly [plastic only], small flour tortillas, Rice Krispie treats [individually wrapped]. A collection box/basket will be located in each Sunday School room and in the Fellowship Hall.
