|Throughout the month of April we will be collecting for Backpack Buddies:|
|Sunday, May 5th, is Service Day at CLC. Our service project to support Backpack Buddies in previous years was very successful and helped many kids in our community. This year, we will support Backpack Buddies again with ONE BIG service project to benefit the Galilee United Methodist Church Backpack Buddy Program. Galilee packs backpacks for almost 400 students at six different schools every week. These are students whose families are financially struggling and might not have food to eat over the weekend without this program.
For the month of April, CLC will collect food for the Backpack Buddy program. On May 5th, all of the youth (preschool – 12th grade) will work together to sort the food and to pack bags.
Please help us reach our goal of packing at least 300 bags for kids in need in our community. Donations can be dropped off at the LINK food cart all throughout the month of April and no later than May 5th.
