No Child Hungry Offering
Saturday, August 10, 2019 - Sunday, August 25, 2019
Keller UMC partners with three Keller ISD elementary schools to serve students who otherwise wouldn’t have access to enough to eat for each weekend during the school year. Each package “backpack” includes child friendly non-perishable food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack.
The backpack ministry cost approximately $7,500 for half of the school year to feed 175 children within our community. To provide for these children each weekend, it costs:
- $2.35 each backpack of food per weekend
- $14.10 for six weeks’ worth of food
- $42.30 per semester for food
- $84.60 provides a child with food for entire school year
No one should go hungry, please support the backpack ministry by a special offering during August. You can make a difference in a child’s life. Please note “No Child Hungry” in the memo line for checks.
