Hebrews 13:16 “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”
The “Backpack Give Back” program is a Community Sharing Program with outreach of the hope of Christ to our local homeless population.
Homeless is not hopeless with Jesus!
Each year, at the end of school, our youth toss aside a used backpack. That same backpack could be recycled with a good cleaning and become a vehicle for connection, and for the much needed basic necessities of food, water, and the message of the Word of God, through love and faith, and Christian charity.
We, at The Cave Ministries, put out a call to our fellow citizens in Christ and in Mobile, and ask you to join us as we reach out into our city and county of Mobile to engage our homeless population in Christian love and service. To the churches, we ask that you share to your members, to the schools, please share with your teachers and students, and to all, please share with your friends and family.
At this time of year, as the school season ends, we have a unique opportunity to collect used backpacks through our schools and churches, and fill them with donations of Christian love and charity. Students, we ask, at the end of the year when you no longer need or want your back pack for school, that you donate it. Drop in one of the bins or boxes provided at your school or church. Teachers, administrators, pastors and parents, we ask that you get involved. Encourage your students in an opportunity to participate, and be an example of Christian love and giving back as a community of His church.
If you would like to help, we are providing a list of some of the needs that will fill these backpacks. You can put the donated items in the backpack, or in a bag, and put it in the bins. You can also donate, by texting BackPack to 406-302-5086. All funds will be used to fill backpacks and administrate providing to the homeless and their needs.
Volunteers are needed and encouraged. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also find more information at PraiseFest.us
