Adopt A Backpack Program

mattsFBside“Adopt a Backpack”

Each year Matthew’s Ministry provides weekend food for children in Brunswick County who do not have adequate food at home. This year we will need over 500 backpacks to start the program. Backpacks go home filled with food on Fridays and are returned on Monday to be filled again.

How can I help?

1. Donate a new or gently used backpack


2. Purchase a backpack and fill it with :
One box of cereal
One jar of peanut butter and jelly (plastic only)
One box of macaroni and cheese
One box of pasta
One can of pasta sauce
One can of tuna, chicken or Vienna sausage
One can of soup
One package of ramen noodles


3. Make a donation of 25$ ( to cover one backpack and first week of food). Checks should be made to Matthew’s Ministry.

All backpacks (filled or empty) and donations can be turned in to the “little red wagon” at the law office of Stiller and Disbrow ( 801 N Howe St). Backpacks can be any size or color and will be used at elementary, middle and high schools in Brunswick County. For more information on Matthew’s Ministry please visit our website at
