SNACK PACK MINISTRY

Crosspath Snack Pack Ministry

We have all seen statistics of hunger in our world and in our country, but may we not forget that that there are hungry people, especially children, right here in East Ridge.  We believe that no child should be hungry in our land of plenty.  Jesus said we are to love and care for our children and we are striving to do that through this ministry.  With the help of all members of Crosspath, citizens of East Ridge and concerned individuals, businesses, civic groups and others, we can not only sustain our ministry, but grow to serve all eligible children at Spring Creek and East Ridge Elementary schools – approximately 1,400 in all!

 

The Snack Pack Ministry is about feeding the Children of Spring Creek Elementary during the weekend.  Snack Pack is a community project coordinated and directed by volunteers of Crosspath Church.  Since Fall 2012, we have prepared and distributed weekend snack packs to eligible children as identified by school administrators.  Currently we deliver over 325 packs each Friday morning of the school year.

 

Monetary Donations are tax deductible and can be made to Crosspath designated -Snack Pack.  Because we purchase as much as possible from the Chattanooga Food Bank and supplement by buying in quantity from food warehouses such as Sam’s Club and Costco we can make your dollar go further.

 

Volunteers are always welcome and there are various opportunities and times to get involved.  Contact the church at 423-698-2421 to learn how you can be a part of this wonderful program.
