In Tennessee, 22.4% of children live in poverty. For some of these children, a backpack from Tennessee Baptists may be all they receive for Christmas.
Christmas Backpacks are Child-Focused, Christ Centered and Church Connected
Every effort is made to connect the child and their family with a local church. Each Christmas Backpack provides an opportunity to share the gospel with a child.
