Backpacks for Kids

“Carry Me Home"

This Month's Donation Request is...

New or gently used backpacks, suitcases, or duffel bags for Foster Children

Please consider donating a small duffle bag or backpack to Charitable Outreach for use by our local foster school children.

The bags and backpacks are important for our foster children because it gives them their own "luggage" as they move from home to home.

Bring the bags and backpacks to the Chapel during March! We need them now!
