Back-To-School Book Bag Campaign

Kids-Junction is launching its 4th ‘Back-To-School Book Bag Campaign’ for children in grades K-5.  Last year’s campaign was a huge success!!!  We collected 54 book bags (exceeding our goal by 4) and a tremendous amount of school materials.  Once again we are challenging our church family to meet or exceed that number this year.    We have found that several families have come to depend on Kids Junction as a resource for their family, even though each family is allowed only one visit every six months.

This year you may choose to bring empty book bags, and/or any amount of school materials.  (The school materials needed are listed at the bottom of this post.)  You may bring in any of these items and place them in the boxes at the Sanctuary doors – beginning now but also all year long.  Children in some of the Galax area will be returning to school in early August, so we would like to have as many book bags as possible, and school supplies, by the first Tuesday in August.

The Kids-Junction Team would like to thank you so very much for your continued support of this mission.  Children are so proud of new book bags and materials and our team is truly grateful for your generosity in helping to make less fortunate children feel prepared as they begin a new school year.

Blessings to each of you,  Linda Murphy, Elsie Davis & Dianne Marshall
