Our next backpack drive is in August 2020

Share the Love of Christ by Helping a Child in Need

Living Faith partners with ABBA Ministries every August to give kids in the Hempstead School District new backpacks. This is to send kids back to school with the tools they need to start the school year off right! Simply buy a backpack for a child or a teen, and drop if off during one of our collection dates. You are welcome to fill the backpack with supplies if you choose!
Who is ABBA Leadership?

ABBA Leadership is a not-for-profit, faith-based organization that LFCC supports. Located in Hempstead, they seek to help those in their community who have been negatively affected by drugs, crime, violence, gangs, and poverty. Using Biblical principles and their knowledge of the criminal justice system, ABBA Leadership boldly shares the Gospel of Christ as they advocate to improve the lives of people in jail, in homeless shelters, in drugs and alcohol programs, and on the streets.
