Backpack of Blessings is a local mission to help feed children over the weekends. So many children are going hungry on the weekends. Their only constant meal is the one they receive at school each day. Backpack of Blessings helps give them enough food to carry them through the weekend without going hungry. Not only does this help with their nutrition but assists in elevating their overall test scores in school.
FCA stands for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives… one heart at a time. Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.
