The Christmas Offering is something that you give above and beyond what you normally give towards a special cause and this year the cause we’re focusing on is Caring For Miami.
Who is Caring For Miami?
Caring For Miami was started by Christ Fellowship and their mission is to care for families in need by serving their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. At Caring for Miami we have three unique programs; Project Smile provides free dental care to those in need on board a mobile dental unit, the Bridge Program helps immigrant families advance their English speaking skills to better navigate everyday life and the Backpack Program which feeds hungry, food insecure, children right here in our city. This year our Christmas Offering will go directly towards supporting Caring For Miami’s Backpack Program.
The Backpack Program
The Backpack Program provides nutritious, easy to prepare meals to food insecure children in Title I schools weekly, when school meals are unavailable. For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. 9.1% of the Miami Dade County population is food insecure. That means 240,000 people do not know where their next meal is coming from. Our Christmas Offering goal this year is to raise enough to serve at least 750 of these children.
Inside each weekend bag Caring For Miami provides 2 breakfast, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2 snacks and this coming year we will be including vegetable and fruit options plus whole milk. We will be including Christ Fellowship Church Invites and Information on our children’s and students ministries.
