Backpack Buddies Ministry
Backpack Buddies Ministry provides weekend meals for needy children (and their families) at Coltrane Webb Elementary School. In 2018-2019, Central is assisting 13 children/families while our sister church, First Presbyterian, also provides for an equal number of children/families.
We would greatly appreciate your help in collecting any of the following items:
Canisters of quick-cooking oatmeal
Boxes of macaroni and cheese
Cans of green beans
One-pound boxes of spaghetti noodles
Cans of tuna
Plastic jars of peanut butter (medium size)
Cans of sliced carrots
Cans of fruit cocktail
Boxes of granola bars/cereal bars
In addition to the needed food, we collect toiletries (full size shampoo, full-size toothpaste, bars of bath soap, toothbrushes, and roll-on or spray deodorant) for the Hygiene Closet at Coltrane Webb.
Any donated food or toiletry item can be placed in the basket beside the associate pastor’s door in the back hallway of the church. You may also give to BBM in the form of a donation or a financial gift in honor of or in memory of someone special.
BBM also welcomes volunteers to grocery shop for specific items, pack food bags, deliver food bags, and pick up empty bags. If you are interested in helping, please contact Doris Redding, BBM coordinator at Central.
Thank you for your support!
