This is a national campaign to assist with feeding needy children on the weekends during the school year. The Mission Committee signed on to partner with Bellevue Heights Methodist Church to support an additional 30 children for 3 years. That is a three year commitment of $9,000. There has been a great deal of enthusiasm from the congregation to support this program. ~450 students attend Delaware school and many are needy. Volunteers from BHMC pack the backpacks weekly and are looking for more assistance to support additional students. $100.00 will feed a student on weekends for a year. Robinson has already sent a check to the Backpacks national program to help feed 30 additional children, which began January 20th. A group of folks from the congregation has already been helping to prepare the food packs at Bellevue Heights.
