Bless­ings in a Back­pack col­lects food and funds

Bless­ings in a Back­pack, Liv­er­pool chap­ter, has com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing week­end food for 200 of the 672 qual­i­fy­ing stu­dents at Sey­mour School on Syracuse’s south­west side. In the past year, LFUMC mem­bers gen­er­ous­ly con­tributed soup, pas­ta, break­fast bars, mac & cheese, etc. These col­lec­tions will con­tin­ue. But finan­cial sup­port is need­ed when food dona­tions fall short. Con­sid­er spon­sor­ing a child for a year of hunger-free week­ends. Your check, made out to LFUMC, can be placed in the col­lec­tion plate or dropped off at the office. BIB #1854 should be writ­ten in the memo line.
