The Backpack Ministry provides food to children in need. Holly Springs Baptist Church partners with Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary School to provide food for needy children each weekend while school is in session. For many of these children, school breakfast and lunch are the only real meals they get during the week and without Backpack Blessings, they may go hungry over the weekend.
Each week, volunteers pack bags of food for over 45 children. These bags are then inserted anonymously into the child’s backpack each Friday. If you are interested in helping or would like more information please contact the church office.
The Holly Springs Fire Department [Click here] partners with the church and the community to raise funds for this important ministry. Donations through this fundraising partnership with the Fire Department enable the Backpack ministry to meet the needs of children in our community.
