Recycle "Gently Used" Back-Packs
As we end another school year our children look forward to the break from having to carry those heavy back-packs back and forth from school. Most of our kids will get new back-packs at the start of the new school year but some of our kids will not have a back-pack at all, much less a new one.
If you have any "gently used" back-packs available we would ask you to consider sharing them with those who would appreciate them. If you bring them to the Humanitarian Service Room, we will fill the back-packs with school and hygiene items and forward them to the appropriate schools for distribution to those in need.
This is an opportunity to share. Wards and other groups are encouraged to take up back-pack collections for this project in time for the next school year.
