Build a Backpack Drive 2018
Join in the excitement when First United Methodist Church builds over 125 backpacks each year for children in the Gilbert area, Family Promise and children who are part of the Sidewalk Sunday School Program. These backpacks are filled with all the items elementary through high school students need to succeed in school.
In 2016, supplies were donated through the generous hearts of the congregation to fill over 150 backpacks.
In 2017, over 170 backpacks were collected…..where will 2018 land?
You can purchase a backpack already filled with school supplies for $20 or you can bring a new or gently used backpack filled with school supplies. Click here to see more information about this year’s Backpack Drive. All items are being collected until July 15th, 2018.
