Strong churches with a bold commitment to the Great Commission

Backpacks for DC Children 2013

June – July

God continues to work through SBCV church planters to reach families in the Washington, DC area. Even though this is the capital of our nation and there are many affluent people living in the area, there are also large numbers of families living in poverty. Providing children with backpacks filled with basic school supplies will greatly help these families and open doors for our church planters to share the Gospel.

Backpacks can be packed for either elementary school students or middle/high school students. The backpacks are to be filled with the following:

Elementary School Students

  • 1 backpack per child (age appropriate)
  • 2 spiral composition books
  • 1 package of colored construction paper
  • 1 package of colored markers
  • 1 package of #2 pencils
  • 1 small pencil sharpener
  • 1 glue stick
  • 1 12” ruler

Middle/High School Students

  • 1 backpack per child (age appropriate)
  • 1 three-ring binder and several pocket folders
