Back Pack Program

AAA_4380The Back Pack Program is a program in partnership with Channel One and Sunset Terrace Elementary School.  The mission is to provide food on the weekends for students who would otherwise not have any.

Sarah Klaehn serves as coordinator / point person for this important ministry.  She is supported by Betsy Bornholdt, our Communications/Outreach Coordinator, as she serves as our liaison with the Principal and Social Worker at Sunset Terrace Elementary School.

Basic information and schedule:

The program runs weekly during the school year.  The food is picked up at Channel One on Tuesdays.  Then the food is set up for packing on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m.  The bags are then packed on Thursday evenings at 5:00 p.m.  Delivery of the filled packs to Sunset Terrace is on Thursday nights or Friday mornings each week for the kids to take home for the weekend.

People are welcome to volunteer to pick up the food at Channel One, set up the food for packing, pack the bags with food, and delivering the bags to Sunset Terrace.  Packing the bags on Thursday evening is really an opportunity for everyone; families, individuals and households. The more we have to help, the quicker the packing goes!

If you would like to help with this ministry, please contact Sarah at gouldk@stlukesepiscopal.org or Betsy Bornholdt at bornholdtb@stlukesepiscopal.org.
