Summer Backpacks

Portrait of happy schoolkid with backpack and books

Our Summer Backpack Project is in full swing. We have to start early this year as school starts back up in Mid-July. Valley View Food Bank will start delivery of school supplies July 1. I have visited with the hard-working folks at VVFB, and they said the need has really increased from last year.

This year we have doubled our order on Faith. We have increased the number of ordered and filled Backpacks from 98 to 196. It will be just around $2,000 for this project. The backpacks for little kids will be 98 and for older kids it will be 98. Each backpack comes with 20 items in it that help the school child in their need for school supplies.

We do not have to do anything in the way of filling the backpacks. We just deliver them to Valley View Food Bank and have our pictures taken so Lakeview gets credit in public for all that we do. If someone is looking for a church that is involved with their community – we, are it, and maybe they will come check us out and join our church!

If you would like to help us out with this project, you can just make a check out to the church and then on the church envelope mark what you want to give to the Mission and Outreach and also mark it on your check too. That way we know it will get to us for sure. Thank you so very much for your generosity and caring.
