On September 2nd, 2023, St. Bart's will be distributing 250-300 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 St.Bart’s.
Please consider donating a filled backpack. We hope to receive 15-20 (or more). The list of suggested items to include in each backpack is below – all items must be brand new. This list is more generic than in previous years. If you're not able to find all of the items, just include all that you are able to.
Please note: calculators are NOT being requested this year.
Please leave your filled backpack donation(s) under the coat rack in the Narthex/Gathering Area anytime between now and Sunday, August 27th.
