Nondenominational Worship Night Planned as Backpacks for Kids Fundraiser
March 12, 2014
The Nurses Christian Fellowship at Southwestern Oklahoma State University is hosting a fundraiser for the Backpacks for Kids program on Saturday, March 29, on the Weatherford campus.
Praise for Packs will be a nondenominational worship night featuring Billy Shaw and Southwestern Christian Church’s worship team. The service will be held at the Fine Arts Center from 6-9 p.m. The cost is $10 at the door and each participant will be entered into a raffle for a new Bible. A bake sale will also be at the event with all proceeds going toward the Backpacks for Kids program.
According to Breanna Adkison, member of NCF, one out of every four children goes to bed hungry at night. Backpacks for Kids is a program that sends home a backpack full of food to kids who may not have enough to eat over the weekend. For every $10 ticket bought, a child can be fed for two weekends.
