RIVERCHASE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH IN HOOVER CREATES A PARTNERSHIP WITH ROCKY RIDGE ELEMENTARY TO START A WEEKEND BACKPACK MINISTRY FOR THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. THIS WILL HELP CHILDREN WITHOUT FOOD TO EAT ON THE WEEKENDS.
“With a free and reduced lunch rate of 48%, we know there is a need for meal assistance. The signs of hunger (stomach aches, headaches, increased irritability,etc.) are there for some of our sweet children, especially on Mondays. We are grateful to Hoover Helps and Riverchase United Methodist Church for helping us bridge the gap between NEED and receiving ASSISTANCE. It makes me feel very proud of our Hoover community.” Dr. Dil Uswatte, Principal, Rocky Ridge Elementary School
