This year we set the bar high at wanting to pack and give out 70 backpacks. CrossRidge responded by not only meeting that goal but by going above and beyond. We gave out 76 backpacks to kids at the LEISD Back to School Bash. Utilizing money given to Dollar Days and donations from…

Great to be Back!

What an awesome night we had with our students this past Wednesday. Over 70 students and over 20 adult leaders showed up to our first student event since March 11. What a blessing it was to see so many familiar faces and to see new faces as well. Well, not faces exactly. Everybody was wearing masks and social distancing but at least we got to see everyone after being apart for so long. Usually, by now, we have had an…
