St. Joseph’s Summer Backpack Program

St. Mark’s members will be packing 1000 bags of food tonight for the St. Joseph Summer Backpack Program.  We will begin at 6:30 pm.   We will also pack bags June 21, July 5 and July 19.

St. Joseph’s provides free lunch for youth 0-18 for eight weeks in the summer at 9 locations in Grand Forks/East Grand Forks.  The bags we prepare tonight will be distributed on Fridays to supplement weekend meals.  Last year we packed and St. Joseph’s distributed approx. 3600 bags (enough for 72o0 meals).

The Backpack Program helps those in need, exactly what we are called to do as followers of Christ.
