Backpack Food Ministry

For the past few years, Schertz UMC has supported Watts Elementary School by providing backpacks containing food and snack items for students from economically disadvantaged families. These backpacks are filled each week during the school year by volunteers from our church and are taken to the school each Friday. The students then return them to the school on Monday to be filled for the next weekend. You may help support this ministry by donating food items or by donating to the church and designating “Backpack Ministry” on your check.

Suggested Backpack Food Items:

Cans of Tuna
Canned Vegetables
Mac & Cheese
Fruit Cups
Granola Bars
Peanut Butter & Jelly (no glass jars)
Single serving such as Oatmeal or Cereal, Raisins & Fruit
Packs of Peanut Butter or Cheese Crackers
Pretzels, Goldfish, Graham Crackers, etc.
