Elmore Baptist Association is providing elementary school children in our county with a backpack full of meals and snacks for the weekend, during the school year. As a pilot program, we will start at Tallassee Elementary beginning February 9th. Other county elementary schools will be able to participate next school year.
Help pack the food into bags every Thursday at 9 AM (Tallaweka BC), deliver the bags of food to the school each Friday at 1:45 PM, or fill the children’s backpacks every Friday at 2 PM. To volunteer, please call the EBA office (567-7321) or click the volunteer sigh up link here. Dr. Gary Merkel of Central BC is our coordinator, and can be reached at 239-233-0341
