One of the programs at H.O.P.E. is the Sylvia McCarroll Foundation. This program provides money for the Back Pack Program. This program sends back packs full of food home with needy children in the Jacksonville ISD on weekends to make sure they will be fed on weekends. This is done during the school year. It provides up to 30 back packs per year at a cost of $162.00 per Back Pack each year.
Also, the SMCF provides medical needs and medication for children whose parents cannot afford it. Also, it provides Christmas gifts for children, who would otherwise not have a Christmas. Any donations should be made to H.O.P.E. - memo Sylvia McCarroll Foundation.
