Beginning May 28 and going through August 6, we will be collecting backpacks for Willard School students. We have committed to at least 20 smaller backpacks for the early grades and 10 larger ones for the upper grades. Each backpack will have a badge on it that says “This backpack was provided to you by Community United Methodist Church”.
To help us reach (and hopefully exceed) our goal, please do one of two things:
- Purchase one or more backpacks and put them in the bin that will be outside on Sunday mornings and in the narthex during the week.
- Give money toward this project by putting it in an envelope with “Backpacks” written on the envelope (if you are writing a check, please make it out to CUMC).
As I said earlier, we are hoping to exceed our goal, so each time you are out and about over the summer, think “backpacks for Willard”!!!
