Community Outreach Backpack and School Supplies Drive 2011

Community Outreach’s Annual Backpack and School Supply Drive is on! For the month of June, we will be collecting with the help of Lisa Pray Project Coordinator, new backpacks & school supplies for underprivileged children in Monterey County. Last year we were able to provide 500 filled backpacks. This year the need is greater (1800) and we’re praying that you can help! We need new backpacks and school supplies (see list below). Every child deserves to go to school prepared to learn, so let’s do our part to make that happen. Please drop off your donations in the bins at the booth or in the lobby.

Then, on July 9th, Pastor Andrew Manies is organizing a group of people who will be stuffing the backpacks with the donated supplies. We will meet in the Fellowship Center at Shoreline from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (lunch will be provided). Come join us and be a part of finalizing this great service project!
If you would like to participate or have any more questions, please contact Debra Federico or call 831.655.0100, x312.
