Share a gift of love and the gospel with a child in need.

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.

How can you be involved?

  • Pray – Start praying today for the boys and girls who will receive Christmas Backpacks
  • Participate – You, your family, your church, and your organization can become involved by preparing Christmas Backpacks for Children and Teens
  • Partner – You can partner with a church or compassion ministry that is distributing Christmas Backpacks
