CDA Court #2690 is again appealing to the generosity of St. Peter the Apostle parishioners for monetary donations to Blessings in a Backpack after the weekend Masses of August 14th and 15th, 2021. BIB is a national non-profit with chapters in 44 states, in addition to other cities in Texas.
The local Boerne chapter started in 2013, providing food to school children in the BISD federal meal program on weekends during the school year.
Children served by BIB nationwide have been shown to have improved attendance, behavior, reading skills and test scores in school. BIB must raise the funds to purchase the food provided. It costs approximately
$175 to support one child for the entire school year.
There will be representatives from the CDA present after all Masses the weekend of August 14th and 15th to answer your questions.
