This year our mission is our "Backpack Snack Program".  Kids will be invited to give to a mission that helps their peers.  At Illini Bluffs Elementary in 2018 over 90 kids received free & reduced lunch.  What happens on the weekend or in summer?  This program would anonymously provide kids in need with food to help them over the weekend. No child should go hungry on our watch.  Kids helping kids.
