Did you know that over 400 children in our Vienna elementary schools qualify for free or reduced meals? For many children, the weekends are especially difficult without the support of their school. To help address this serious need in our community, Vienna Baptist Church is partnering with our local sister churches to lead a meal-packaging event to provide weekend "backpack meals" to children in the Vienna/Oakton area through their schools. Our plan is to package 10,000 in 2 hours for these deserving children. Join us on Saturday, May 12th from 10:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Vienna Presbyterian Church to participate (check-in begins at 9:30 a.m.).
Currently, we have needs for volunteers willing to help with registration, greeting, hospitality, and set-up. Last year, many VBC members served as table leaders who help welcome and motivate volunteers. We wanot to have another strong turnout from VBC so we hope you will sign-up as a table leader. If you are unavailable on Saturday but would still like to help, there are also volunteer opportunities for set-up on the evening of Friday, May 11. This is a wonderful mission opportunity for people of all ages as kids as young as 3 are welcome to participate.
