The children are excited about the opportunity to serve children in need through Backpacks of Love. Cherie Perkins spoke to our students about how some children do not have enough to eat on the weekends. Their primary source for food is at school each day. Through this organization, children in need are given backpacks filled with food to take home with them on the weekends. Our children are learning compassion through this project. Backpacks and non-perishable food items are beginning to fill our room. Then the children will fill the backpacks and add some personal touches.
