Cylinda Barron
Backpack Blessings program

Cylinda Barron is heading up this program out of Aldersgate United Methodist Church to feed kids for the "In Between Times".  Supplemental nourishment is provided to children who are at risk due to a variety of circumstances for the weekends (4 carbohydrates, 4 proteins, 2 breakfast items, 2 shelf-stable milk, 2 fruit, 2 juice, 2 snacks).  The program is currently servicing 5 area schools. 

Our club received a District grant to help support this effort. The cost to provide one child's meal for a week is $20, a month $80, a semester $360 and for the year $720.  We will be presenting her with a check for $1,980, half from the District and half from our Club.

Come learn about the program and how our Club is helping by participating in our monthly service project.
