Filled Backpack Collection for St. Bart’s to Distribute to Children

At its "Back to School Community Barbeque" on September 3rd, St. Bart's will be  distributing approximately 250 filled backpacks to the children in their community, and have asked partner churches to help gather the backpacks. Prince of Peace will be collecting only completely-filled backpacks for them. Please consider donating a filled backpack. We hope to receive 15-20 (or more). The list of items (ALL BRAND NEW ITEMS) to include in each backpack is below.
