Sugarland Backpack Ministry
Join us at Sugarland Elementary as we start a new school year to serve and love our community by packing Backpacks with food for Elementary students to eat over the weekend. This is a perfect service opportunity for families with elementary age and older students, service organizations, and Small Groups. This is also a great opportunity to invite a neighbor or a friend to join you and share why this is important to you. We pack almost 300 bags and it usually only takes about an hour or so with 6-8 people packing.
PLEASE NOTE: The packing location has CHANGED!! IF you packed last year, we are packing on the opposite end of the school. Please enter and park in the FRONT parking lot of the school and as you face the school, you will enter the first set of doors on the far right side. If the door isn't open use your keys to knock - we are packing right inside the doors. Door open 5 minutes prior to the packing time for that day.
If you are the first person (or group) to sign up for a date, you can pick your packing time!! The time frame for packing can start anytime between 3pm to 7pm. When you are the first to sign up for a date, please sign up as "Group Lead" and put the packing time desired in the comment section. Then others can sign up as a volunteer so you will all get reminders of your scheduled time. As a group lead, we encourage you to invite your friends, family and neighbors. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or call 703-444-3528.
If you do not have a group to sign up with, you can still help us out! Look for the dates that may have open spots for you to join that group! Make sure to take note of the time that the group is packing bags that day.
