Backpacks for Kids

Let's use this year's back to school shop to learn about and respond to a local need! For some, back to school shopping is a huge financial burden - poverty hides in our neighbourhoods, and even among families who fill the chairs just down the row at church. Grab your family and friends and let's beat this year's goal of 200 backpacks! List available at the link below, or at the Info Desk in the Lobby. Supplies can be dropped off in the Lobby any time during building hours.

Donation Deadline: Sun Aug 19
Sorting & Packing Help needed: Tues Aug 21 (10am-12pm) & Wed Aug 22 (10am-12pm)
Handout Helpers needed: Thurs Aug 23 (10am-12pm)
