On November 18, 2019, Christian Charity, Backpack Blessings and L2 for Kids will participate in Give2Grow- Phelps County Match Day hosted by the Phelps County Community Foundation. GIVE2GROW is a county-wide giving challenge designed to raise dollars for local nonprofit organizations. During this one-day event, a share of every donation will be matched through an incentive pool of funds provided by generous donors and the Phelps County Community Foundation. To donate checks have to be dated November 18th and made out to Phelps County Foundation or you can go on line at www.give2growphelps.org
With your support in 2020 we helped 194 households in Phelps County and gave out $48,657 towards rent, utilities, medical, car repairs, etc. Our food pantry gave out $6,000 in food and Caring Cupboard supplied $2,050 in household cleaning, personal hygiene, and paper products. Through this ministry the love of Christ has touched the hearts of many. Without the give2GROW fundraiser for Christian Charity we would not be able to help so many people.
Backpack Blessings supplies food supplements for weekend meals to children in need. For the 2021-22 school year Backpack Blessings is serving in excess of 103 students. Through generous donations of time and money this program can continue for years to come.
L2 for Kids
L2 for kids is a non-profit group that provides funds for children to purchase new school clothes. This year the Holdrege L2 for Kids spent $7,011 helping 83 children purchase their own new school clothes.
