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 with classroom donations and the Backpack Buddies program could really benefit from your generosity. Of course, this is voluntary on your part.

We hope that you and your child will enjoy purchasing a few items to donate as you do your grocery shopping...you can even let them help decide what to buy.

The food items needed are listed below and should be purchased in individualized boxed containers. (Remember it has to fit in a backpack.)

  • unsweetened applesauce containers (any flavor)

  • shelf stable milk boxes

  • juice boxes (100% juice)

Listed (and pictured) below is the Donation List for November for each class.

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