COS has been privileged to partner with two (and now three) local schools within the Francis Howell School District through our Operation Backpack program.  This program provides a backpack of food for kids who might not otherwise have something to eat throughout the weekend.  Two years ago we expanded our partnership to include Neighbor Helping Neighbor to help families find a pathway out of poverty through assistance and education.  We are excited to share that we are again expanding that partnership with two of our three schools to help impact students and their families.  We want to offer love, hope, and compassion through forming tutoring teams, teacher appreciation event teams, student celebrations, lunchroom support teams, and build resource collections for those students who are in need.  We are so incredibly grateful for the school administration and the conversations that are happening to make these opportunities possible.

How can you help?  You can be a part of this awesome opportunity to change a life by signing up to be part of one of these teams at our mini ministry fair this weekend.  Please know that we are in various stages with all of these opportunities.  Some are already in place and some will not begin until after the first of the year.  Please keep all of our servant volunteers, students, teachers, administrators, and all of our schools in your prayers.
