June 11, 2019 - Gulf Shores, AL - (OBA) - When school gets out for the summer most of us think about endless days of sun and beach.  Unfortunately, some of our Pleasure Island children have to worry about where they are going to get breakfast and lunch.  
 
To eliminate that worry from young minds, the Christian Service Center has a Summer Backpack Program for income qualified children in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan.  The Summer Backpack Program provides breakfast, lunch and two snacks for each day, five days a week.  To sign up, come by the Christian Service Center in Gulf Shores between 9 am – Noon, Monday - Friday. Backpacks will be available for pickup each week until school starts.
 
This is the second summer the program has been funded by the Mystics of Pleasure Krewe.  Last summer their generosity allowed us to serve 96 children!
 
The Christian Service Center is a “Hand Up” rather than a “Hand Out” agency.  Clients are given immediate emergency aid as well as guidance on finding solutions to their problems.  The CSC is a 100% volunteer agency funded by the churches of Pleasure Island, various community organizations, including the United Way of Baldwin County, and interested individuals.  For more information please call the CSC at 251-968-5256 or visit www.cscgs.com.
