Kids Against Hunger Event 2018 will be April 7, 2018.  This year’s event will be held in the Family Life Center at FUMC Waxahachie, 501 W. Marvin.  The goal for this year is to package 80,000 to 100,000 meals.  This will take $21,000 to do the 80,000 meals. Every $1 donated buys 4 meals.  We will be packaging meals for local and international use again this year.  The meals packed for local use last year were used by local organizations to feed people in Waxahachie and throughout Ellis County.

Shifts available are 8:30am-10:30am, 10:30am-12:30pm, and 12:30pm-2:30pm.

Click Here to Sign Up.  Children as young as six to eight years of age may work with parent supervision.


Did you know that Backyard Orphans is one of Oaks Church’s local partners? On May 19th they are looking for volunteers to help with their 7th ANNUAL RIDE FOR KIDS! 

Bikers from all over North Texas will participate in this Ride for the Kids. Following the ride, there will be a luncheon with a short program where the attendees will generously bid on items in an auction and purchase raffle tickets. All proceeds from the day will go directly to further the mission of Backyard Orphans.

There is a need for volunteers at the event to help with a variety of things:
