BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES
This fall, we are again supporting the Foster Care Program in Tompkins County with a BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES program. Currently there are about 100 foster homes in the county. Children in foster care often move around during the year and are not necessarily eligible for backpack give-a-ways at the beginning of the school year. In addition to using backpacks for school, they frequently have nothing to carry their belongings as they move to and from a foster home. This will provide them with something uniquely their own.
Our target number for this fall is 20 new backpacks and school supplies to fill them. We have committed mission committee funds and personal donations from committee members; in addition, we hope for donations from you, the congregation. With careful shopping, a backpack can be purchased for $15-$18, and supplies for $17-$19. Donations are due September 25.
You will find sign up sheets and information both at the front (with the backpacks) and on the crowded table in the back of the sanctuary. If you would like to support this project, please sign up and then take an information sheet. If you would like to donate money for this project, you may give it to any committee member, clearly marked for the backpack project.
