BACKPACKS FULL OF HOPE : Deadline AUgust 5th (blessing of the backpacks Sunday)
Please read first! Then scroll down to sign up. It's time once again for the Backpacks Full of HOPE campaign. Our goal is to provide 10 filled backpacks per grade level for both Battlefield Elementary and Middle School(s). That comes to 90 filled backpacks! Please note we are provided the actual backpack with supplies this year again. Please sign up for a grade level so we can make sure we have enough of each grade level. Enlist the help of your Sunday school class, small group, neighbors, friends, co-workers, and relatives to help us meet the challenge. Individuals and groups can sign up to provide a supplies by clicking here. Fill out and submit the online form and you will receive an email containing specific supply lists for the grade level(s) you choose. One special note: extra boxes of tissues, Expo Markers, gluesticks and crayons are especially appreciated! Monetary donations are acceptable and will be used to purchase stack-able Rubbermaid storage bins and perhaps some extra "goodies" for teachers and faculty. Please make checks payable to "Hope Presbyterian" and write "Backpacks of Hope" in the memo. All contributions must be delivered to HOPE Presbyterian Church, 11121 Leavells Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22407 by Wednesday, August 1st. Our annual Blessing of the Backpacks will take place on Sunday, August 5th during the morning worship service and supplies will be delivered to the schools the next day.
