In December, leaders of Blue Mountain Community Church brought the need of our Backpack Bridge program to their congregation. The Backpack Bridge allows us to fund weekend meal backpacks for food insecure children - essentially bridging the hunger gap between school and home. This church's community engagement and generous spirit produced a donation of $12,282, which will help serve 76 children for the entire 2017-2018 school year.
By advocating for these children, they have given more than weekend meals - they have given the gifts of stability, peace of mind and hope. Talk about great community action. A big thanks to Blue Mountain Community Church!
