Back Pack Ministry

Fighting Children's Hunger With a Backpack 
At Northgate Baptist Church, one of our missions is feeding children in our community.  Currently we serve 2 schools in Raleigh County. We provide food during the weekends.  We pack 126 bags on Wednesday nights after Wednesday night services during the school year, but many more children are still in need of weekend meals.  By working together, we can provide the needs of our community one bag at a time.
If you have any questions on how you can help, please contact James Watkins at
(304)-253-4996 OR (304)-228-7760.  

One hundred percent of your donation is for food.  None of your money will be spent on administrative costs.  All of your donations are tax deductible.  We try to pack each bag as nutritionally sound as possible.  We try to pack foods that kids don't have to cook or refrigerate.  Sample food items packed in the bags include: Slim Jims, cereal bars,fruit snacks,  animal crackers, peanut  butter crackers, apple sauce cups, pudding cups,
juice boxes, and nuts.
You can go to our main web page and donate to the Back Pack Ministry at any time.  You can also send a  check to Northgate Baptist Church, 301 Pinewood Dr., Beckley, WV  25801.  On the memo line put "Back Pack Ministry". 
There will be a Back Pack Fundraiser held on Saturday, September 15 at
Northgate Baptist Church, 301 Pinewood Dr. in Beckley.  We will be having a flea
market starting at 9:00 am, and at 3:00 pm will have a gospel sing.  We will also be selling BBQ will the fixings, among other things.  It will run until 9:00 pm.  If you have anything
you would like to donate to the flea market, please bring it by the church by Sept. 9. NO CLOTHES PLEASE.  Also, we can arrange to pick up anything too large for you to
bring.  Contact James Watkins at (304)-228-7760 or Jennifer Watkins at 304-228-6642.
  If you would like to help with the fundraiser, please be at the church by 8:00 am
on Saturday the 15th.  It will take many hands to make this effort a success. 
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards purchasing food for the backpacks.
