Since 2001, the Presbyterian Women of Southminster have held an annual backpack and supply drive for local elementary schools and the Boise/Ada County Housing Agencies. Through the years, the reach of this mission has grown from 50 backpacks to now over 500 backpacks annually!
Want to help?
Presbyterian Women will be gathering at the church on August 2 and 3 from 9:00am-12:00pm to organize, tag, fill, and prepare backpacks for distribution. You are welcome to join.
This year, with prices skyrocketing, expenses are expected to exceed the funds available from grants and Bazaar proceeds, so the team is also in need of additional financial support. Checks made payable to “PWS Backpack Program” can be submitted to the office, in the offering plate during worship, or given directly to PWS Treasurer Priscilla Oja.
Thank you again for supporting this important mission project!
