Help Epiphany Church Provide Back-to-School Backpacks for TEENAGERS!

We have committed to supply 60 fully supplied backpacks for YWCA resident teenagers to start the new school year. Please sign up to bring one fully provisioned backpack or some of the items below to fill a backpack or a donation to be used to buy backpacks and supplies—we need the backpacks, the supplies, and/or donations by August 17. Each backpack needs to contain:

1 backpack (teenager appropriate!)
1.5” 3-ring binder
8 tab dividers for binder
4 spiral notebooks, college rule, 70 ct.
1 filler paper, college rule, 120/ct.
1 index cards, 3 x 5, ruled 100 ct., white
1 box #2 pencils, 12/pk
1 box colored pencils, 12/pk
3 medium blue or black pens
6 highlighters, chisel-tip, assorted colors
1 fabric pencil case w/3 grommets, 10” x 6”
1 glue stick, .28 oz
2 tape, invisible, 3/4″ x 1296″
1 sharpener, double barrel
1 box facial tissue
1 USB Flash Drive

Purchase your donations and bring them to the back of the church between now and August 17. You can provide either:

  1. A fully provisioned backpack, or
  2. Some of the items listed above, or
  3. Donation to help us pay for a backpack

Please email Ann McCurdy (ann.mccurdy@comcast.net) with what you will donate. This really helps us keep track so we don’t have too much of one item and too little of another. Thanks for all your help!
