127 Backpacks for Akron Public Schools

Aug 15, 2019

127 Backpacks assembled!

Faith families gathered for dinner and a service project.   With your generous donations, the congregation was able to assemble and donate 127 backpacks filled with school supplies to Akron Public School.  We are thankful for the United Way of Summity Country for providing the bags.  We provided all the supplies in each bag.

The goal was to fill 50 backpacks!  We gave almost three times more than that.  Wow!

When we say, “Worship God. Grow in Faith. Offer Hope.” we really mean it.  You are offering hope to students who would come to school unprepared.  We give dignity and resources to students through these backpacks. 

Thank you!

Each backpack has 10 pencils, 1 box of 24 crayons, 1 large eraser, 1 zippered pencil pouch, 1 pastic school box, 2 glue sticks, 2 black dry erase markers, 3 folders, 1 pack of notebook paper, 2 highlighters.
