If you would like to participate, please buy a school backpack, and fill it with back to school supplies. Please label the backpack either Grades K-3, Grades 4-5, Grades 6-8, or Grades 9-12.
The backpacks should not be specific for either a boy or a girl. The backpacks may be dropped by the food boxes near the prayer wall on the weekend of August 17/18 and on Monday, (August 19th) until noon.
Backpacks will be available for pick-up on August 19, 20 and 21 from 9 to 4. We will also have them available for pick-up on Tuesday, August 20th from 5 -7. We are also hoping to have enough backpacks to offer them to families living in area shelters.
Last year, 162 children and teens benefited from your generosity. It is so important for children and youth to see the goodness in the world. If you are needing a backpack. please call us at 508-918-2291 to have your name put on our distribution list.
Suggestions for supplies may be found on our website. Lists are also available at the front doors of the church. Thank you in advance for your participation in this year’s drive!
