Operation Backpack

Our priority is to donate brand new, quality backpacks filled with these basic school supplies! We will then distribute them and build connections with families to show our community the love of Christ! 

The more filled backpacks the better, but please make sure they are functional and will not fall apart too quickly. Name brands are NOT necessary. Choose the age level and gender you will pack a bag for, shop for these items, and bring your pre-filled backpack to the Operation Backpack table at the church by Sunday, July 28th.
