Easter Backpack Project

Easter Backpack Project

Our church family has been given an opportunity to help with a special “Easter Backpack” distribution at Franklin Elementary School. Spring Break will have kids out of school for a whole week rather than just a weekend; so the Backpack coordinator would like to send them home with extra food. We have been asked to provide 60 bags that contain these much-needed provisions. Each bag needs to contain the same items, so we are asking you to complete a bag (or bags) using the list below – and then deliver it to the church on or before Sunday, April 9. If you’d like to participate but don’t have time to shop, you can also “sponsor” a bag by donating $13 and marking your gift “Easter Backpack.”
