2016/2017 School Year BackPack Ministry Recap

Annette Helping Hand

As part of its Ministry Program, College Park partners with BackPack Beginnings to help with food distribution to needy students at Peck Elementary during the school year. There are two groups of volunteers that help with this:  the runners who pick-up and deliver the food to the school on Thursdays, and the classroom distributors that help on Fridays.  In 39 deliveries, our volunteers delivered 3967 bags to Peck, and increase of 378 over the prior year!  A huge thank you to runners John Eagles, Jerry Elkins, Jeri and Randy Henderson, Leslie Hicks, Stephanie Kretz, Tim and Les Lowrance, Kevin Shortt, and Michael Usey, and classroom distributors Beth Hoagland, John Eagles, Jeri and Randy Henderson, and Erica Palmer.  If you would like to help with this important ministry, there will be sign-up opportunities and orientation sessions available before the new school year starts in August.  Please contact Jerry Cunningham, jerrycunninghamgso@gmail.com if you would like more information.
