At this time, we are not accepting new volunteers with the Backpack Buddies program at Galilee Church due to the COVID-19 situation. We hope to reopen these opportunities for the 2020-2021 school year.

The best way to support the program at this time is to donate Family Break Bags which are being distributed on a limited basis to families.

Please visit galileeumc.org/family-bags for more information and instructions.


Our children need you

Over 14,000 children in Loudoun County, Virginia are food insecure.  What does that mean? Their families may not know where their next meal is coming from. Our program provides weekend and holiday meal packs to help meet the nutritional needs of children when they are not in school.
