2023-2024 Community Outreach Project
Holy Spirit is continuing its commitment to Blessings in a Backpack a year-long community outreach program supported by the parish and school families. Blessings in a Backpack provides food on the weekends for school-aged children across America who might otherwise go hungry.
The local school we will sponsor this year is Field Elementary, which is less than a mile from Holy Spirit. At Field, 75 children qualify for the Blessings in a Backpack program, and, with our help, every child will leave school on Friday with a backpack full of food!
Holy Spirit also supports the Blessings in a Backpack program at Cordia School in Hazard, Kentucky, providing weekend food for 100 children. “Thanks so very much for reaching out to the students of Cordia School,” said FRYSC Director Marlea Cornett. “Many blessings to everyone that helped with this program.”
Join us on Sundays after 10 a.m. mass to pack food for the Field students. Volunteer opportunities are for of all ages, including families and children. Click here to sign up.
