Our “Blessing of the Backpacks” back to school event took place on Friday August 26th and it was a HUGE success! We had over 95 people, kids and parents, attend our event and 37 backpacks & 30 lunch bags were given out to families in the community.
The kids had an amazing time with the BBQ, the games, and activities. The games earned them tickets that they used to picking out their own prizes from the tables of donated school supplies which they to fill up their backpack.
Thank you so much to all the volunteers who helped to organize this event to make it the success that it was. Thank you also to those that donated backpacks and cash donations (totalling $615.00) to purchase the school supplies & additional back packs.
