On Saturday, August 11th, Ace in the City (one of our local missions partners) will be hosting its 6th annual Back2School Bash at Powderhorn Park. It's an afternoon filled with fun community-building activities, as well as an opportunity for families to purchase backpacks and school supplies at a greatly discounted cost--an approach that maintains dignity and provides a greater sense of ownership for the families.
Ace has set a goal of collecting 350 backpacks this year, and as a church we have set a goal of collecting 30 backpacks towards that goal. Ace is asking each backpack to also be filled with a $20 bill to help cover the cost of school supplies. Let's blow past that goal of 30 backpacks and help kids start the school year strong!
Let's also take the step this year of serving at the Bash. There are many opportunities to serve on the 11th, including a great need for those who can speak fluent Spanish to serve as interpreters. Reach out to Matt (email@example.com) with any questions, or click HERE to register to volunteer.
