Pack a Backpack

for DHHS Foster and Local School Kids

Once again we are collecting backpacks and supplies to donate to DHHS foster kids and students at local schools. While the actual collection does not start until July 23, we want you to be aware of the needs so that you can buy backpacks and supplies as you see them on sale at local stores.

Foster kids are often moved to a new home on short notice and appreciate the gift of a backpack filled with emergency supplies. The backpacks for students help all children have backpacks and supplies similar to those of their classmates. Our goal is to fill and donate 100 backpacks.

Please read the list below carefully when shopping because it is important that the backpacks have similar supplies in them:

 

100 New Kid/School-style Backpacks!
Small tissue packets
Folders
Kids shampoo
Small hand sanitizer

 

Markers
Erasers
Glue sticks
Kids soap
Lice kits

 

Crayons (24 pack)
Pencil sharpeners
Pencil pouches
Kids body wash
Combs/Brushes

 

Colored pencils
Rulers
Spiral notebooks
Deodorant
Hair ties

Chapel youth will be packing the backpacks in late summer. Cash donations (checks payable to The Chapel marked “Backpacks”) will purchase emergency clothing for the foster children.

Bring your donated items to church July 23-August 20 and place them in the bins that will be located at the Missions kiosk.
