DFUMC helps sponsor the Backpack Program at Dallas Elementary and Herschel Jones Middle School. The Backpack Program is desperately in need of breakfast and meal items for the month of January. Breakfast items include individually packaged oatmeal, grits, etc. Meal items include individually packaged Ramen Noodles, Chef Boyardee, Easy Mac, etc. The children in the Backpack Program are sent home with a bag of food every Friday to help feed them over the weekend. Each child will receive 1 juice box, 1 fruit cup, 2 breakfast items, 2 snack items, and 2 meal items.
- Juice Boxes
- Fruit Cups
- Instant Grits and/or Instant Oatmeal
- Individually Wrapped Snacks (pretzels, chips, crackers, granola bars, etc.)
- Meal Items (Easy Mac, Ramen Noodles, Peel off cans of soup or individual pasta meals)
Please make sure that all donated items are within
2 weeks of the expiration date.
Donated items can be placed in Room B107 (Fellowship Hall) or given to the church office.
If you would like to make a monetary donation to this program, a donation of $5 will feed 1 child for 1 weekend. A donation of $20 will feed 1 child for the month. Please label the memo section of your check “Outreach” to donate to the backpack Program. You are helping to make the difference in a child’s life!
