Backpacks of Hope Program
One out of every five youth are faced with the distraction of hunger.
Please join us in our Hunger Relief efforts by Collecting food or sponsoring a Food Drive on our behalf.
Our Backpacks of Hope Program is now in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Cabarrus County School Systems. We receive applications ongoing throughout the school year and we need the support from the community to make this happen continually. This Program provides the meals for the entire weekend for the youth. The School Counselors and Social Workers have informed us that a large portion of these youth are from the homeless population. We also serve the Homeless population when contacted by community organizations identifying the need. We prayerfully ask for your continued support and generosity by reaching out to your churches, businesses, sororities, fraternities, civic, corporate and community groups, etc., to help make this happen.
HUNGER WON'T BE THE EXCUSE!!!!
A typical backpack, depending upon Esther's Heart's inventory, may contain any combination of the following:
~Fruit cups in water or fruit juice
~Natural fruit chews with no added sugar
~Low-sodium pasta dinners
~Low sodium non-refrigerated microwave meals
~Canned meats in water
~No salt added nuts & seeds
We're the Hands and Feet providing Spoons FULL of H-O-P-E!!!!
Please support this endeavor through your food donations, grocery gift cards and or financial donations. The cost to feed each child is $250.00 and we serve approximately two-hundred (200) children each school year . Feel free to sponsor a child for the entire school year.
From our Hearts to your Hearts, we say thank-you for your continued support.
TOGETHER, we will eliminate the Distraction of Hunger, One youth at time!!!!
