Atascadero program supports homeless children
December 2, 2013
A new program is providing meals to 25 homeless children in Atascadero each week.
Crossroads Church sponsors the program that provides a backpack full of food for the children to take with them as they leave the Santa Rosa Elementary School each Friday. Prior to Thanksgiving, church leaders asked for holiday type food items.
In addition to the food drive, the church is asking people to adopt one of the 22 homeless families for Christmas. Donors will be given the age and sizes of the children in the family.
Depending on the size of the family, donors will be asked to bring one to five wrapped packages to the church for delivery before Christmas.
