Saxe Gotha will be partnering with Lexington School District One to support the Backpack Program. As a partner, we will help fill bags and send them to schools for weekly distribution to children who have great need.

Each child identified as having need will receive a bag filled with child-friendly, nutritious, easy-to-open food to last over the weekend. There are four ways you can help:

  • Donate items from the list below
  • Donate money to purchase items as needed
  • Volunteer to pack bags
  • Pray for the students that receive the bags

Items Needed for Backpacks:

  • juice boxes
  • cereal/granola bars
  • snack crackers
  • single serving cereal boxes/bowls
  • raisins
  • peanut butter
  • fruit cups/pouches
  • pudding cups
  • mac and cheese packets/cups
  • oatmeal packets

Our Families in Faith Sunday School class members are willing to pack the bags. 

If you, your family, SGPC circle or small group is interested in donating food towards this Lexington One effort, please contact: 

Holly Waldrip at waldrip@sc.rr.com. 

Donations are accepted during the school year until the end of May.

Thanks for caring for children in need in our community!
