Southern Baptists are challenged to provide 80,000 backpacks for children and teens living in poverty regions in North America. South Carolina Baptists, in cooperation with the SC WMU, are partnering with Appalachian Mountain Ministry to provide Christmas backpacks.
The Christmas backpacks are a tangible expression of Christ's love for each teen. Frankie and Judy Caulder (missionaries in Kentucky) partner with the Empty Stocking Fund, to provide food and gifts to needy families at Christmas. The greatest need in this ministry is backpacks for middle and high school teens. And, the need is especially great this year due to the recent bankruptcy/closure of a local coal mine. Please join us at FBC, Camden, as we provide Christmas backpacks for teens in Harlan County, Kentucky!
