Angels Afoot: School Supply Drive


Angels Afoot: School Supply Drive

JUL 7, 14, & 21 | After each service | the Plaza & Home For Hope entrances

During the month of July, you can help kids in need by purchasing backpacks to fill with school supplies. Return the backpack with supplies the following Sunday. Most of the backpacks that we have purhased, are made by our very own Siloe folks. The money that is raised will go toward the El Salvador children, while the supplies will go to Austin children at Travis Heights and Proyecto Esperanza (East Austin NDC) in August. 

There will tables of volunteers out on the plaza all three Sundays, after each service to assist you

Cost: You can purchase a backpack for $25 or just donate $50 and we will do the shopping for you
