WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF SUPPLIES AND DONATIONS TO PROVIDE STUDENTS IN NEED!
Hi Everyone! It's time for our 3rd annual "Operation I've Got Your Back-Pack" project to begin for the school 2015-16 school year.
UPDATE: OPERATION: I GOT YOUR BACKPACK UPDATE: I just wanted to let you all know, I am in town this week after all! So if you have supplies you want to drop off, just let me know. I will have an updated list at the Commerce Breakfast tomorrow. We are good on pencils, but everything is still open. Don't forget to give me your business card for the flier. We will be accepting donations next week as well. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE ALREADY DONATED!
The backpacks have been ordered!!! There are 185 to fill. One case of 24 will be for the middle school and high schools. So keep that in mind when purchasing supplies. So, 161 for elementary supplies, and 24 for the high school and middle schools. Please call River of Life Worship Center before dropping off supplies 208-587-2812. Also, remember the fill date is Thursday, August 13th at 6 pm at the church.
About our Project
If you are not familiar with the project her is some background. The River of Life is facilitating a community project for our needing families of Mountain home, as well as some of our neighboring communities, by giving out FREE backpacks filled with basic school supplies. As the project is growing we need more partners to donate school supplies. Monetary donations are welcome as well.
We are asking this year for businesses to focus on one or two items, such as pencils or paper, for a specified amount they are willing to donate instead of trying to bring a variety. It will make the process much easier. If you chose to donate money, please make the check payable to the church and then the church will go out and purchase the supplies.
100% of ALL DONATIONS GIVEN go DIRECTLY to the project. There are no administrative costs. All workers are volunteers. Backpacks are delivered to the schools and they distribute them as needed. Anyone can come help pack the backpacks...we need your help so please join us!
If you have any questions or would like to become a partner in this project, please call Cheryl Stull, Children's Pastor at 587-2812 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited for this project and believe it is a need in our community but we need your help.
Monetary donations for backpacks: July 22nd.
***ANY donations received after July 22nd will go towards purchasing supplies to fill the backpacks***
(This allows us to purchase online and get the items shipped in time)

Filling Backpacks: Thursday, August 13th @ 6 PM at the church
