Members of St. Peter’s sponsor up to 75 backpacks at Lyle Creek Elementary School.
Each school year new backpacks are purchased or donated.
Every Friday morning at 7:15 a group of volunteers pack the bags that may include canned vegetables, chicken, tuna, fruit, soup, cereal, pop tarts, granola bars, ramen noodles, hot chocolate, juice boxes, spaghetti, tomato sauce, oatmeal or grits.
These items are collected in the back hallway, if you would like to make a donation. We are also supplemented by donations from Oxford Baptist Church. Thank you for the blessing of items & time to this program.
If you are interested in volunteering call Oz Hefner @828-320-5650.
