Backpack Mission


John Lucas, Chair

The United Methodist Men have now taken on a new challenge this summer and we are looking for the same great support you have show our men in the past. We have purchased two cases of Backpacks  (100 total) that we would like to fill with school supplies and deliver to Southwest Elementary, a school whose children are at the poverty level and in need.   I will be supplying sample list of the supplies we need and we will have the shopping cart in the Narthex setup with an example of what we are hoping to do.  We have less than four weeks to complete this mission!  If you would like to contribute money – we will be glad to do the shopping!!
