Last year we were able to do a Backpack Drive to bless some 200 kids in the TUSD district as they started back to school.
This year, we’re at it again! This time focused on providing every child and friend of ours at J.B. Wright Elementary School with one. We’re working in partnership with Emmanuel Baptist Church and the Principal of JBW, to provide 400 backpacks with school supplies – so that each child receives a jumpstart of encouragement for their educational pursuits this school year.
Here’s the details:
- Elements is looking to GIVE 300 backpacks
- we’ve purchased the backpacks – you can provide $5 to cover the cost of one
- PICK UP backpacks beginning June 29th at Elements City Church
- FILL the backpacks with the appropriate supplies (see provided list)
- RETURN BY SUNDAY JULY 27th
We will need a few of us to help finish sorting and then delivering on July 30th for a “Meet the Teacher” at JBW that afternoon. Talk to Jack or Bryan if you’re interested in being a part of the delivery crew.
We have such a GREAT church with a desire to bring the HOPE of Jesus to the HEART of our city!
We’re grateful for your investment to be a blessing. #generositywins
