July Missions Collection - Fill the Backpack
July 1, 2018. All day
Organizer: Brandi Miller

This month we have the opportunity to bless over 1,500 children in the South Dallas area by helping them acquire the school supplies they need for the 2018-2019 school year. With 97% of the children living in single parent homes and 56% are being raised by grandparents, the need is great!

Then, be sure to save the date for August 18th as we join Park Cities Baptist Church for the Cornerstone Carnival. We will get to help pass out the school supplies collected to the children in the community. 

This collection will run through the month of July. You can drop your donation off in the collection bin located in the foyer of the main church building. Contact missions if you have any questions.

Although we appreciate the consideration of sharing more of what you have, please limit donations to only the items listed.
