Dayton Baptist Church Sponsors Annual Back Pack Program

Summer is almost here, and that means many children who depend on the school for hot meals will be left to find nutrition elsewhere. It’s a sad reality that many children, children in our own communities, face food insecurity.

A local church has been stepping up to the plate for the last few years to try to help. Dayton Baptist Church annually sponsors the “Back Pack Program” throughout the summer.

Every Friday at 10 a.m., volunteer members from the church will be at the Mansfield City Park handing out sacks of food to children.

Of course this labor of love comes with a cost, and that’s where you can help! The church will accept donations to help continue to provide food throughout the summer.

If you are interested in assisting with the program you can send a donation to:
