Backpack Blessings – July 2 & 17

Backpack Blessings – July 2 & 17

This summer, the Service Committee is sponsoring a partnership with Horizons of Hampton Roads to help feed at-risk Portsmouth elementary school children.  Horizons is a 6-week program to boost math and reading skills, with local sites in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Portsmouth. Kids attending are fed breakfast and lunch on site during the week, but volunteers are needed to provide weekend backpack meals.  Green Acres will provide these meals twice during July, and will need your help to pack the bags each time, July 1 and July 17.  Mark your calendar, and watch for more information and sign-up in the pew registers on Sunday morning!
