A sincere “thank you” for your generous support of the Board of Deacons Backpack Project. Together we raised more than $3,400 to assist at-risk students from Evanston’s District 65. New backpacks, water bottles, Target gift cards and Bluetooth earbuds (to help minimize students’ distractions as they study) were provided to get the school year off to a great start. The overwhelming support allowed the Deacons to supply Family Focus with writing journals and craft supplies for after-school projects.
Deacon volunteers met to fill the back packs and to write a personal message to each student. The back packs were delivered to Family Focus prior to the start of the school year.
