Backpack Buddies

The Light of Bare Bulb continues to provide nutritious food for the children of Cherished Children. At first, we packed individual bags for children who qualified for free lunches due to their family’s income. We have since expanded to providing family bags for these children to take home and share with their families as well. These food items are delivered to Cherished Children every Friday, and they have been greatly appreciated by those that receive them.

We currently pack the following food items:

Peanut butter
Easy Mac
Canned Spaghetti/Ravioli
Fruit Cups/Apple Sauce

We invite you to join us in donating food items and have drop-off points at Steak Out on Russell Parkway, Classic Hair Design and McDonald’s Horse Supply & Western Wear in Bonaire, and both the Highway 96 & the Houston Lake Road locations of CB&T Bank in Warner Robins. Please stop in with your food items at any of these locations!

We pick up the donations on Wednesday so they can be packed and delivered by Friday.

If you have questions or want to be more involved, please message us at our contact page.
Thank you for your support in this as we do what we can to help these families with their immediate needs.
