Oh my gosh!!! My heart is breaking!  PLEASE help if you can. I just received this message from Alice Prevatt, founder and organizer of Backpack Blessings, a program to feed students-in-need over the weekends (remember the 2014 Christmas Food Drive?)...here's her plea:

"Hello everyone. This is a call for help as we are out of oatmeal, grits, fruit cups, beanie weenies, almost out of mac and cheese, out of canned soup and after next week's bags are done we will be COMPLETELY out of food. We are needing more food this year as we are feeding more children and we have only had 4 food drives from 13 schools we serve. What money we have been able to get has been spent as soon as we get it in trying to keep these children fed on the weekends and as you that work in schools can tell, bags are not as full as they have been in the past. Items just have not been there. I am BEGGING you all if you can help in any way please send food to us at Fountain Inn Presbyterian Church...our pantry has never been this skimpy. These children look forward to and count on these bags every weekend, please help if you can! Thanks and God Bless!" - Alice

If you would like to help this sweet and Godly woman feed the nearly 200 students she serves every single week, please clickHERE to do so. This will take you to my Carolina Chic website where I have a shopping cart already set up that will allow you to make a donation.

PLEASE help the children!  ‪

Thank you in advance for your love and generosity!
