Our Backpack Giveaway event blessed local children in need

This past weekend, we had an outreach event at our church to give away backpacks to needy children.  Although we didn’t get as many visitors as we would have liked during that hot summer day, we welcomed and pray with those that did come.  Their children were blessed with backpacks and our own kids got to spend time with each other in crafts and games.

At the end of the day, we still had around 40 backpacks left.  Luckily, God helped us find a school to bless with these backpacks.

The rest of the backpacks with school items that were not given out last Saturday were taken to Monarch School, downtown, by sister Shirley, where a lot of underprivileged and homeless children go.   Students were very grateful for the free backpacks. Thanks again for your generosity!
