Remember your first day of school? New pencils, new paper, new crayons!! A new backpack full of supplies gives a child a feeling of excitement and hope. Grace will be handing out about 200 backpacks to children in Boys & Girls Club, Migrant Family Literacy Program, and other children in our community at the end of July. Each backpack costs approximately $30 and a lot of donations are needed. The best way to help these children is by dropping a donation in the offering plate (designate for school supplies) or visit the backpack donation table in the Narthex for more information about specific needs and school supply lists by grade. Supplies may be dropped off at the backpack table or in the office. Thank you for helping the children and youth head into another successful school year.
