St. Paul’s UMC Teams Up With Back Pack Buddies

300 Harper Avenue • Carolina Beach, NC

A hungry child, right here in our community; is that really possible?  Yes, it is true, sad but very true. Thankfully, there are also people who volunteer their time and money in a determined effort to bring food to these hungry children.   St. Paul’s United Methodist Church Angel Food Ministries is supporting the local “Back Pack Buddies” to help fill this need in our community.
The “Back Pack Buddies” program currently fills the back packs for underserved students each week at our local area schools with good, wholesome food that the students enjoy.  All of the volunteers and donators then know that each child has food to eat throughout the weekend.  It is hard to imagine a more worthwhile cause. 
St. Paul’s Angel Food Ministries is joining with New Life Studios to raise funds, so they can purchase “No Child Goes Without” food boxes.  New Life Studios is well known in the Wilmington area as a leader in helping worthwhile organizations raise needed funds.  New Life Studios is taking photos on April 9th and 10th in St. Paul’s Fellowship Hall, 300 Harper Avenue.  Certificates go on sale February 21st.  Each certificate entitles you to one 10”x13” portrait, and the best part is they are only $10.00 each!  Imagine that, $10.00 for a professional portrait.  They will do several poses.  Don’t forget to tell your friends and family! Tell everyone you know!  One hundred percent of certificate proceeds go towards feeding hungry kids in our community.
