Project Backpack

Each fall, the Foundation helps hundreds of students in Southern Illinois prepare for the new school year, and for life. Each student receives a fully-stocked backpack, complete with school supplies and a Bible.

 

     
walkathon   Walk-A-Thon

Foundation volunteers initiate a walk-a-thon each year to raise funds for the Foundation's annual program of providing bikes as Christmas presents for disadvantaged children. The walk-a-thon participants obtained sponsors and “walked so a child could ride.” The walk-a-thon is held each November at Lakeland's Lake Hollingsworth.
