Most of us can remember the anticipation and excitement of shopping for new school supplies each fall. However, many children do not have the joy of this experience and return to school without the necessary supplies for a successful school year. Here’s a great opportunity to support these children.

For just $25 you can ensure that a child has all the necessary supplies for the coming school year. The backpacks will go to children from the Rogers Park Presbyterian Church and the surrounding neighborhood. Our goal is to provide 60 new backpacks for these students.

Samples of the backpacks/school supply kits will be available to view after services for 3 Sundays, (July 22, 29 and August 5). There will be someone available to take your donation or you can send one to the church any time before September 1 (please mark your check: Backpacks). Note cards will also be available to write a note to a student, cheering them on as they begin a new school year.
