School will be back in session August 20th and for kiddos and teens that means school supplies will be needed. Our food pantry clients can sign-up to receive backpacks, but donations are needed from the congregation!

The efforts this year will be led by Crystal Voigt, she explains, “We are going to do a similar “Flood Bucket” where the congregation can either make a backpack and bring to drop off or they can just purchase the supplies needed and drop them off. We will do two different backpacks elementary and middle/high school. The supplies are very similar and only a few more for the upper level backpacks (middle and high school) so this should make it easier for collection, assembly and distribution.

DATES TO REMEMBER:
May 29- June 19: Sundays: Volunteer sign up for all aspects of backpack (Sign-Up in the Gazebo or e-mail Crystal at crystallynn.voigt@yahoo.com)
June 23-July 14: Thursday’s during food pantry hours: sign up families for backpacks
