Ask How You Can Become Involved In Our
Backpacks Full of Blessings Program
Katherine Ingram, Parent Facilitator, Waccamaw School & Missy Settlemyre-Founder WINGS Ministry/BackPack Full Of Blessings.
Through Community Outreach, WINGS MINISTRY founder, Missy Settlemyre, became aware of children in her local community (Shallotte, NC) spending the weekend hungry. Not in another country- but in her own hometown! After researching and partnering with local schools and other volunteer organizations, WINGS Ministry piloted the Backpack Program in four schools. As of January 2013, Each weekend, WINGS serves 900 individuals in 9 Schools in Brunswick County. NC.
One out of every six children in the United States (16 million) is food-insecure.
Over 62% of children in the U.S. Public School System are on Federal Free & Reduced Meal Program.
Long-term childhood hunger can lead to a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization rates; lower IQ’s and academic achievement.
Short-term childhood hunger leads to difficulty learning, the inability to focus in class along with the inability to retain knowledge.
How our Program Works:
Our Backpacks are filled with nutritious food for the Child and their family members!
$ 50.00 feeds a family of four in our program for One month (4 weekends).
Volunteers assist with fundraisers for the Backpack Program.
WINGS Ministry donates the Backpacks for this program!
Each Friday, students receive their backpacks filled with the necessary food and nutrition for the weekend.
Backpacks are returned on Monday & the children in this program are now ready to learn!
(1) To help put an end to childhood hunger!
(2) To provide nutritious meals for children over the weekend so they are better equipped to
achieve educational success.
(3) To increase public awareness regarding the issue of childhood hunger in the United States.
