#bejoy Backpacks

Bring food for hungry kids- receive a #bejoy backpack!

“Sometimes the best way to bring good news to the poor is to bring actual good news to the poor. It appears a good way to bring relief to the oppressed is to bring real relief to the oppressed. It's almost like Jesus meant what He said. When you're desperate, usually the best news you can receive is food, water, shelter..."  

(7, An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker) 

Many school children face being hungry on a daily basis and therefore, rely on schools to fill their tummies. We'd like to help our local food organizations who prepare & deliver backpacks filled with food each week to help feed these children on the weekends. One of the things THE JOY FM community DOES BEST is love God, and love God’s people.


The JOY FM will be out all over our listening area collecting FOOD ITEMS FOR THESE CHILDREN. {See the locations below} In return The JOY FM will give YOU a #bejoy drawstring backpack!
