Once again we are collecting backpacks and supplies to donate to kids in foster care and students at local schools.
While the actual collection does not start until July 22, we want you to be aware of the needs so that you can buy backpacks and supplies as you see them on sale at local stores.
Kids in foster care are often moved to a new home on short notice and appreciate the gift of a backpack filled with emergency supplies. The backpacks for students help all children have backpacks and supplies similar to those of their classmates. Our goal is to fill and donate 110 backpacks.
Please read the list below carefully when shopping because it is important that the backpacks have similar supplies in them:
Chapel youth will be packing the backpacks in late summer. Cash donations (checks payable to The Chapel marked “Backpacks”) will purchase emergency clothing for the foster children.
Bring your donated items to church July 22-August 19 and place them in the bins that will be located at the Missions kiosk.
