Where Faith, Friends, and the Future Meet

Backpack Program

The backpack program supports several elementary schools in the area with each participating church supporting a different school.   Our church supports neighboring E.P. Rock School and North Hudson schools. The backpacks provide a nutritious meal for the receiving family once a month. A short list of needed items and when to return the backpack is included in the backpack. So the next time you see someone handing out green shopping bags at church, ask how you can provide one meal to a family in need.      



Members of JOY Fellowship fill backpacks at one of their get togethers.
Backpack items
Backpack Program at E.P. Rock and North Hudson Schools 
Our church participates  in the Hudson Area Backpack Program. We provide food for families in need at E.P. Rock and North Hudson Schools in Hudson, WI. Coupons for milk, cheese, and bread are included in the backpacks this year.
 Donations for the cost of filling a backpack - approximately $10 -- are also very welcome and appreciated. For additional information, contact Barb Chapman  or Judy Olson by calling the church office at 715.386.3921. 
Members of the Girls Scouts have assisted with the Backpack program by helping fill backpacks.
