We have the opportunity to serve homeless children in our community by providing them with backpacks full of hygiene supplies. While this school year will be wildly different, there are thousands of kids who are also coping with the uncertainty of their living situation. That's why the ministries of A Child's Place (ACP) and Children's Hope Alliance (CHA) are more important than ever. While we may not know for sure what this school year will bring, ACP and CHA have let us know that they are still desperately in need of hygiene items and will need to have backpacks when the school year begins. These kids need someone in their corner, and you can help to do just that to serve these students in our community.

It's so easy! Head to the store with your Backpack Drive shopping list in hand and check off your list as you add things to your cart. Next, bring your backpacks full of supplies to Meck and drop them off. Our team will be there with hand sanitizer and gloves, taking the necessary precautions as we collect the donations. Your donations will make a difference in the lives of so many in our community! 

All you have to do:

1. Buy a full-size backpack.
2. Fill it with all items on the shopping list (links below).
3. Bring it to Meck on August 9 (10 a.m. - 3 p.m.).

We ask that everyone follow the social distancing guidelines upon donation drop off. Below you can find the drop off times:

August 9: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
