Social Justice Corner – It’s time to * Adopt a Backpack *
During the school year Matthew’s Ministry provides weekend food for children in Brunswick County who are classified as “food insecure”. Filled backpacks go home on Fridays and are returned empty every Monday to be filled again.

Matthew’s Ministry provides weekly food to over 550 children at 16 area schools and will need backpacks filled with food to start the program again in the fall.
There are two ways that you can help fill this need.
Option 1: Pick up an empty backpack at Sacred Heart (beginning August 6). Purchase the food items (listed below) and place them in the backpack. Return the filled backpack to Sacred Heart by August 21.
Option 2: Purchase a backpack, fill it with the food items (listed below) and return your filled backpack to Sacred Heart by August 21.

All filled backpacks will need to be returned to Sacred Heart by Sunday, August 21.
