The weekend of August 7 & 8 is our “Back to School Backpack” supply collection weekend. We will collect school supplies to share with local children who are in need. Please bring new backpacks, glue sticks, crayons and pencils. These items can be dropped off in the designated area of the Lobby.
This is the time of year when many families start gathering school supplies – backpacks, paper, glue, pencils and more. For many in the Mechanicsville/Western Heights area of Knoxville, buying pencils and paper is a luxury that their children have to do without. Eighty percent of residents of the Western Heights housing projects are single mothers with little to no income.
The good news is Faith Promise is partnering with an awesome ministry, Water Angels, to help out these families. On Saturday and Sunday, August 7/8, Faith Promise will collect school supplies at a table outside the main entrance to the Worship Center. Please bring new backpacks, glue sticks, crayons and pencils.
If you’d like to be a part of the give-a-way party, it will take place on Saturday, August 14th, at Water Angels.
Thanks in advance for your generosity! If you have any questions, you can email SusanT@faithpromise.org.
