HUDSON BACKPACK PROGRAM

One of the ways we live out our vision to see renewed neighborhoods, is through support of the Hudson Backpack Program. Thank you, FCC, for your generosity in the way you are helping families in our community!

As part of the Hudson Backpack Program, FCC provides food and prepares backpacks for families in need at our partnering schools, Willow River Elementary and EP Rock Elementary. Many of the families have difficulty providing food for weekend meals. Backpacks filled with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items are sent home on Thursdays twice a month to assist feeding families over weekends.

Green bags are handed out at FCC one Sunday a month during the school year with a shopping list of items to be purchased. If you’d like to participate, here are some ways you can help:

  • DONATE new or slightly used backpacks. We will use them to send food home during the school year. Drop them off at the Info Center.
  • PICK UP a green bag to fill up with food.  Shop for the listed items and bring the filled green back on the following Sunday.
  • VOLUNTEER to help handout the green bags after one of the worship services.
  • VOLUNTEER to help pack backpacks.  They’re packed twice a month on Tuesdays.
