We’ve been collecting new backpacks and school supplies for a month or so, and the community has responded very generously. We have over 50 backpacks, and this Sunday, August 20, we’ll be packing them with supplies after the 10:00 am service. Still needed are water bottles, loose-leaf paper, markers, and pencils, both colored and regular. Here is the full list of supplies.
If you would like to help pack the backpacks, please come to the Parish Hall. The filled backpacks will be handed off next week to DHS, one of our community partners, who will give them to children in foster care so that they can start the school year right!
