Backpack Buddies

Wake Cross Roads connects with a local school each year by providing food for its Backpack Buddies program.  Backpack buddies provides children in need with a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack each weekend during the school year. Through this program we are reach into the homes of our local community and show the love of Christ.

Don't have time to shop? Let us do the shopping for you!  We will be purchasing food items in bulk with any donations we receive. Monetary gifts can be made towards the purchase of food items.
