BOOMERANG BACKPACKS

First Church of God has been partnering with Boomerang Backpacks since 2012 to serve the children of Mary Raber Elementary School.  This program exists to provide nourishment to low-income elementary students over the weekend by providing bags full of food to each individual child.

Each Thursday, our team gathers to pack the bags and pray over the students that will be receiving the bags.  On Fridays, the bags are delivered to the school for the students to take home for the weekend.  

The bags provide: 2 single serving boxes of cereal, 1 lunch sized meal, 1 fresh fruit.

      How YOU can be involved:

  • Financial Partnership - Contact the church office to find out how you can give to this program.
  • Volunteer - Packing on Thursdays with family and friends is a great way to spend time together serving!
