In October of 2013 after hearing about a local elementary school who had many families still struggling to get back on their feet after Super storm Sandy, the Dice Family, Suzanne, Keith, Amanda, Jake and Aiden, saw a need to help the children of families in need.  They quickly became a ministry of The United Methodist Church of Red Bank.  As you will learn below, this program provides a backpack full of food for when the weekend comes and there is no school meal program to rely on. Our church volunteers help bring the supplies of food to the Backpack Crew pantry as well as fill these backpacks with the food for each family. Completely private, the identities of each family are unknown. This ministry is so important and the need is still pressing. They can always use more help! Come by and learn what you can do to help support the Backpack Crew.
