Thank You
Mt. Ruhama Church, thank you for supporting Tuttle’s All Pro Dad’s Program!
Love, Tuttle Elementary Student Council
Children
Backpack for Kids
Mt. Ruhama is helping to sponsor the
BACKPACK FOR KIDS program at
Balls Creek Elementary and Tuttle Elementary
This program is geared to help children in need by supplying food over
the weekends. The backpacks are distributed each Friday with around
15 items of food, and the empty packs are returned on Mondays. The
process is repeated each week.
Because of increased need our collection will be ongoing/year
round. We will alternate delivery to each school as soon as an
adequate amount has been collected.
What types of food are needed? Any single serving canned food (pop-top if
available) or individually wrapped snack foods will be accepted. Our goal is
to provide healthy foods that are child friendly. The contents for each
backpack will weigh approximately 5 lbs., yet in some cases, a bag could
weigh up to 12 lbs., with contents. Therefore, it is important to use single
serving cans so that it will be lighter for the children to carry home.
*Canned meats (chicken, tuna, ham)
*Canned meals (beef stew, soup, beef-a-roni, chicken & dumplings,
Macaroni & cheese, spaghetti & meatballs)
*Ramen Noodles, Instant Oatmeal & Grits in packet
*Fruit bars, Granola Bars, Pop-Tarts, Cereal Bars, Protein Bars
*Peanut Butter (small plastic jars or single serving cups)
*Popcorn, crackers, etc.
ANY single serve non-perishable food items will be welcomed.
(Microwavable items are fine)
