It is sad to know that many children go hungry over the weekends. Our church, Hiland Park,started this ministry to try to meet the physical needs of these precious children while showing the love of Christ.
This is a ministry we at Latitudes Realty care deeply about and support. With every house SOLD, Latitudes Realty makes a donation to help support this program and meet the needs of children in Bay County.
This excerpt was taken directly from Hiland Park’s website to describe the ministry further:
“During the school year many children do not have enough food to eat on the weekend. One local teacher noticed children hiding food in the lunchroom so they could have food to eat on the weekend. Each week volunteers at Hiland Park prepare hundred of “backpacks” full of food for children in need. These backpacks are then distributed throughout the county. The backpack ministry exists to show the love of Christ through meeting physical needs.”
