BACKPACKS: Help us help children succeed in School!


Help us help KIDS!!

During the month of July, you can donate backpacks and school supplies to benefit the students and families of Sierra Elementary School located near our church.

Just drop the items off at the church office 9 am- 4 pm, Sunday Mornings or at Messy Church on July 21th. 


There are many children in Lancaster and the Antelope Valley that live in poverty.

Economically disadvantaged students have a very difficult time with succeeding in school.

One of the most unfortunate results of their economic struggles is that students who live in poverty often do not have the basic essentials they need in order to be prepared and engaged. 

 

Ensuring that children are properly clothed and have the necessary supplies to participate in school can have a dramatic effect because it helps children stay in school, promotes learning, and promotes positive self-esteem.

 

Our Backpack program supplies disadvantaged and displaced children with backpacks filled with school supplies to help them be prepared to perform in school.

 

We distribute the backpacks to children through our local schools who identify the most deserving families.  

When you help us help a child, 
 you are making a difference in this world.

Thank you for your support!
