Annual VFC Backpack Drive

The Annual VFC Backpack Drive

Your Local Justice and Compassion Ministry is excited to partner with the Pregnancy Resource Center and Beach Flats Center to provide backpacks full of school supplies for each and every child that they serve, ranging in age from 6-17. As we provide for some of the tangible needs in these kids lives, we have a chance to give each of them a sense of pride and value. Most of these kids have probably never returned to school with brand new supplies.

How You Can Help

Visit our sign up table in the courtyard to get all the details. There, you can sign up to buy a backpack and school supplies. You can commit to buy just the pack or just the supplies or both. Starting July 20 through August 10, we will collect backpacks/supplies. Last day of collection is August 10. A collection bin will be available all day on Sundays and in our main office (open Mon-Thurs, 10-4pm). We'll be having a packing party on Wednesday, August 13 @ 6:30pm to fill backpacks and get them ready for delivery to the centers.
