Bridgeway Christian students pack 10,000 meals for hungry children
Students, faculty and staff at Bridgeway Christian Academy (BCA) packed 10,000 nutritious meals for hungry children in Greenville and in Haiti during a special event Dec. 8 at the school. The effort is part of BCA’s Feed the Need program that also raises money for scholarships and curriculum enhancements for its students.
BCA students, families, faculty and staff participated in packing, sealing and boxing the meals that will be containerized, shipped and distributed to hungry children overseas. The school reported that 9,000 of the meals will be going to Bethel Mission Outreach, a ministry partner of Bridgeway Church, which is directly affiliated with the school and across the street from BCA. The remaining 1,000 meals will be given to Harvest Hope Food Bank in Greenville.
“We are thrilled to have wonderful partners in Bethel Mission Outreach and Harvest Hope,” said Kyle Meleski, director of development at BCA. “This entire campaign has been one that has allowed our students and school families to be part of something truly special. We’re really looking forward to the packing day. We know it will be a meaningful experience that provides us all the opportunity to serve those in need.”
Part of BCA’s Vision Statement is "to prepare students to be Christian leaders by fostering community and world outreach."
This occasion is just one way that they’re able to live out what they believe and create an atmosphere within the school that is consistent with those beliefs, Meleski said.
