2020-2021 Sponsorship Campaign

Kids may not be going back to school in person this fall, but we are still committed to supporting our Backpack Buddies and other families in our community.

Help Galilee Church "Lend a Helping Hand" by sponsoring a Backpack Buddy today. Your donation will help us to cover the costs for the Backpack Buddies ministry for this school year.

The program provides weekend meal packs to children who, because of low family income level, receive free or reduced-price lunch on school days. Each weekend pack contains 6 meals - 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and snacks for the weekend.

Our goal is to collect enough donations to cover half of our operating costs for the year - $25,000. 

  • For $225, you can provide weekend meal packs for one student for an entire year.

  • For $113, you can provide weekend meal packs for one student for one semester.

But we will gladly take any donation amount!

PLEASE NOTE: GivingGrid automatically adds an additional donation to cover their administrative costs.
This additional donation does not benefit Backpack Buddies or Galilee Church.
The additional donation amount can be edited on the final screen prior to pressing the "Complete Donation" button.
