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.
