Backpack Buddy Ministry
Crossroads is working with Weddington Hills and Carl A Furr elementary schools to help feed hungry families. Many children receive free breakfast and lunch at school each weekday, but do not eat much at home on the weekends.
Please help fill backpacks to send home with children for the weekend by donating non-perishable food.
There are lists of needed items in the Missions Corner.
Donations can be dropped off in the Missions Corner or the NexGen Lobby.
