Local Christ­mas Back­packs for Wheel­er Coun­ty is sim­i­lar to Christ­mas Back­packs for Appalachia, with the excep­tion that these back­packs will go to the chil­dren in our own com­mu­ni­ty. 27.4% of Wheel­er Coun­ty lives below the pover­ty line, this is much high­er than the nation­al aver­age of 14%. Lets show these chil­dren the love of Christ dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son by pro­vid­ing them with every­day items.
