Operation Backpack

Posted August 3 The Well Missions

We are teaming up with our local mission partners to provide school supplies and backpacks for students in need right here in Fresno.

Live Again Fresno serves the children and families living in motels along Parkway drive. They provide after school programs, mobile food service, and build relationships with kids and parents at the hotels.

Every Neighborhood Partnership connects churches and community partners with Fresno elementary schools. The Well has been working with Susan B Anthony Elementary (North Campus) and Powers-Ginsburg Elementary (Fig Campus).

The Contreras family has been working with World Impact in the Hidalgo neighborhood. They have a recreation center for outreach and host after school programs, game nights, Bible Clubs, parent gatherings, summer programs, and foodservice programs.
