Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies is a ministry of the church for the children of the Four Oaks area. Students identified at Four Oaks Elementary School and Four Oaks Middle School who may not have enough to eat over the weekends when away from school are provided with a “Backpack” of food for the weekend. Anita Stephenson leads this critical ministry for the children of our community. Below are the contents of each “Backpack” sent home. Please consider contributing these items directly to the ministry or provide a financial gift to support the program.
