Back-To-School Book-Bag Campaign

The KID’S JUNCTION Team is launching our third Back-To-School book-bag campaign for children in grades K-4. Last year’s campaign was a huge success!!! We collected 50 book-bags filled with materials. We are challenging the church 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 donate book-bags and materials separately instead of packing the book bag. You may bring as few or as many items as you would like. Do keep in mind that book-bags need to be sturdy. You may begin bringing in any of these items and placing them in boxes at the Sanctuary doors. (Needed materials are listed below and can also be found on the table in the Annex.) Children return to school in Galax in Early August. We would like to have as many book-bags, and a good supply of school materials, by the first Tuesday in August (August 4th). Sunday School Classes or other groups may want to take this on as a project.

The Kid’s Junction Team would like to thank you so very much for your continued support of this mission. If you have any questions, you may call Linda Murphy at 233-9102 or 236-6080.
