If you have been inside any store lately, you may have noticed that the summer gear has moved aside for school supplies. Summer is almost to a close which means we have an opportunity to bless others!
Last year, we brought half of our backpack drive donations to Burrus Elementary. This began a relationship that has grown significantly over the year. At Christmas, we provided 15 families with presents and then went on to support the teachers through gifts and little pick-me-ups.
This year, we are continuing the relationship with Burrus Elementary by focusing our backpack drive on their campus. The Wraparound Resource Coordinator said that they were in need of school uniforms in addition to school supplies. Starting this Sunday, look for a Back To School Tree that you can take a tag off of to bless a student. There are backpack tags that have backpacks and school supplies listed on them that are needed at the school, there are clothing tags that have specific size and quantity listings on, and even a few tags with underwear needs on them because accidents happen.
Make sure that when you pick up a tag that you say a prayer for the students and teachers that will receive these blessings! We are God’s hands and feet whenever we reach out to help others.
