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! Due to the unforeseen circumstances this year, you may also write out a separate check made out to Living Faith Christian Church so we can provide a backpack and supplies for the children and teens in need. Please provide $25 per backpack and write "backpack drive" in the memo section. If you wish to provide funds for one backpack include a check for $25, for two backpacks $50.. and so on. Please seal the check in an envelope and label it "backpack drive"
Who is ABBA Leadership?
