The FPCE Deacons offer their thanks for the quick and generous response to our annual Back-to-School Backpacks program. All students’ names & lists have been taken! Those who have taken children’s names should remember to get all supplies back to the church office by Sunday, July 28. They should be sealed shut in a bag or box with the child’s name and number written on it. There’s no need to buy backpacks, as Evanston’s Ice House Gallery has once again stepped up and provided them all. We offer a special thanks to them, and, again, to all those who signed up to take part in spreading hope and joy to the backpack recipients.
