Sunday, August 6 2017, we will be engaging in our 6th Annual Backpack Giveaway. Over the last three years, we have given away over 2,000 backpacks to students in the economically depressed area of South Los Angeles. This was accomplished through the donations of time, supplies and money from our church and community partners. For many families, the supplies that we provided were the only items they had to prepare for the school year. For many other families, there was nothing. We would like your help to change that. We are looking to expand our reach this year to help even more families and students. We hope to raise $15,000 to be able to give away 2,000 more backpacks this year.
We know the need for help in our community is great, but our desire to help is greater. We also know that if we provide the help to our children now, they will grow to help others in the future. There can be a time that the need for charity like this can be a thing of the past, but not yet. There is a present need that requires resources greater than we can currently provide. Your assistance will help to bridge that gap. Your donation will not only help us to expand the quantity of backpacks we give, but we can also improve the quality of the items given. We are happy to acknowledge your donation on our website by clicking the link below. Thank you so much!
