Share a gift of love and the gospel with a child in need.
In Tennessee, 19.3% of children live in poverty. For some of these children, a backpack from Tennessee Baptists may be all they receive for Christmas.
Christmas Backpacks are Child-Focused, Christ Centered and Church Connected
Every effort is made to connect the child and their family with a local church. Each Christmas Backpack provides an opportunity to share the gospel with a child.
How can you be involved?
- Pray – Start praying today for the boys and girls who will receive Christmas Backpacks
- Participate – You, your family, your church, and your organization can become involved by preparing Christmas Backpacks for Children and Teens
- Partner – You can partner with a church or compassion ministry that is distributing Christmas Backpacks
