Backpack Buddies and GFCC in February

February 12, 2017


Backpack Buddies


Feed the Children

Food Drive


Greenwood Forest Children's Center is partnering with Greenwood Forest Baptist Church, Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian Church, and Kirk of Kildaire Preschool in the Backpack Buddies program.  


This ministry helps children at Briarcliff Elementary and Farmington Woods Elementary schools.  The donated food helps students who depend on the free breakfast and lunch programs, making sure that they have enough food to eat over the weekends and holidays when they are not at school.  This food 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.


In November, we were very generous with our classroom donations, and we'd like to continue this program in the month of February.  Of course, this is voluntary on your part.  We hope that you and your children will enjoy purchasing a few items to donate as you do your grocery shopping.  You can even let them decide what to buy.


The types of food items needed are all individualized cans or boxed containers. (Remember the items have to fit in their backpack.)


  • small cans of ravioli or lasagna

  • applesauce containers

  • Ramen noodles

  • shelf stable milk boxes

  • juice boxes


Below is the Donation List for February by classroom.


Thank you for your generosity to those in need.  GFCC appreciates this opportunity to teach our students empathy, gratitude, and sharing.
