Backpacks Due by Aug. 16

We have made great progress with the backpack collection, we have 27 backpacks in hand. We have until Sunday August 16th to reach our goal. Thank you to all who have contributed to the success of this ministry.

This year, the backpacks we collect will go to Liberty Middle School.  The WFCM counselor who heads this project has stressed that we collect “the larger sized backpacks with 2 compartments…like Jansport or High Sierra…because that’s what works for BIG students carrying LOTS of STUFF”.  There is a collection box near the front desk for depositing the backpacks.
