Backpack & School Supply Collection

Our backpack and school supplies collection for children in need will be held during the first two weeks in August. Please help to fill a backpack with school supplies. When purchasing school supplies for your family, please consider purchasing an extra item for a child in need. A collection bin will be available in the gathering space. Get the supply list here.
