Backpack Drive

Backpack Drive

Download: Download Event

Each year, Meck holds a backpack drive to serve children and families in the Charlotte area who may not have access to get the supplies needed for the following school year. For this year's backpack drive, we are partnering with our local Missions 2.0 partner, Bruns Elementary School, to provide a backpack for every child at that school. Any surplus will go to our other partners: David Cox Elementary or Least of These.

Please note: there will be no drop off times on Friday August 12 or Saturday August 13.

How it works:

Just fill a brand new backpack with the items on the list below and bring it to Meck's physical campus - it's that easy!

What do I do if I attend in person?

If you attend in person, you can bring your backpack to either in-person service on August 7 or 14 and place it under the backpack drive tent when you walk in.

What do I do if I attend online?

If you attend online, you can either:

  1. Bring your backpack(s) to Meck's physical campus on August 7 or 14 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

  2. Bring your backpack(s) to Meck's physical campus during the week of August 8 - 11 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

  3. If you aren't local or unable to physically bring a backpack, don't worry. We are providing the option for you to go through your store of choice and deliver your items to Meck's physical campus. To ensure we receive all donations on time, please send out your donations before or on August 7.
