Backpack Buddies and GFCC

Backpack Buddies Feed the Children Food Drive Greenwood Forest Children's Center is partnering with Greenwood Forest Baptist Church and Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian Church in the Backpack Buddies program. This ministry helps children at Briarcliff Elementary and Farmington Woods Elementary schools. This donated food helps students who depend on the free breakfast and lunch programs, making sure they have enough to eat over the weekends and holidays when they are not at school. This is greatly needed. We, at GFCC, are very blessed. We would love to help in this ministry because we know children cannot grow and learn as they should if they are hungry. GFCC families are always very generous
