Summer Memorial for the 4th year will reach out to the children of Boundary Street School by providing weekend backpacks. Our goal is to financially fund backpacks for 10 children this school year. In addition, we will also pack another ten backpacks that are being funded through a Harvest Hope grant. Backpack supplies are purchased from Harvest Hope Food Bank; $7.50 for one backpack for one student. Multiply that by 36 weeks for one student ($270) , then multiply $270 by ten students and that brings us to a total of $2,700 needed to fund this ministry. Fortunately, the expenses are spread out over serveral months and final orders are not placed until April 2017.
All donations, regular offering and special gifts, to this ministry should be marked Backpack Fund.
May God Continue to Use Our Hands for His Work!
