Outreach - Inner City Bakersfield


Addicted to meth for 20 years, Maria finds help through an inner-city church and Cru®. PowerPacks® were a key.

PowerPacks® are an amazing tool to help Christ-centered urban churches reach out to those in need in their neighborhoods. Brand new school supplies delivered in the name of Christ!

Help needy families with back-to-school necessities and a new pair of shoes. The basic school supplies (we tend to take for granted) are precious for many Bakersfield children. It's like getting a backpack of hope. Getting to see how happy these children are when they receive a new pair of shoes will make you feel privileged. Hope changes everything!

PowerPacks are backpacks filled with school supplies for "at risk" students. Each PowerPack® contains the following items:

  • Pencils
  • Eraser
  • Notebooks with lined paper
  • Pens
  • Crayons
  • Geometry kit
  • Book of Hope


For questions and more information, please email Chris Frech.
