Backpack Ministry 2018

Backpack Ministry 2018
We have wrapped up another successful Backpack Ministry Campaign!

Due to your generosity, we were able to surpass our goal to raise $1,800 this year. Our total amount raised from this year’s campaign is… $2,750!

Through this year’s campaign, we were able to provide 275 backpacks full of school supplies to the following schools:

  • Mark Fine Elementary School – 135 backpacks (150 requested)
  • Tony Alamo Elementary School – 10 backpacks (10 requested)
  • Aldean Comito Ries Elementary School – 20 backpacks (20 requested)
  • Lily Fong Elementary School – 60 backpacks (60 requested)
  • Marion Earl Elementary School – 50 backpacks (50 requested)

Through your donations and your time we have been able to impact these children in our community!

A special thank you to Josh Bevers, Walgreens Store Manager, for his support. He has helped to make the cost of providing a backpack full of supplies cost effective!
