Backpack Drive

Backpacks and supplies are starting to accumulate! Thanks to those who have given so far, and those who are planning to donate to this drive. Martha has identified Edison Elementary School is a school in our district that is often overlooked. At Edison, over 80% of students receive free or reduced priced lunches.

Classroom supplies that the families are unable to provide are often purchased by the teachers, with their own funds. With your financial donations (write "backpacks" in the subject line of your check), Office Depot gift cards will be purchased for the teachers’ use. We’ll bless the supplies on Sunday, September 10.

Please give as you are able.
