The Board of Deacons is once again partnering with Evanston’s Family Focus to help 27 area students begin their school year with new backpacks filled with school supplies and other helpful items! The congregation is asked to donate towards the cost of the backpack and contents, which will include such items as earbuds, insulated water bottles, writing journals and Target gift cards. The deacons are hoping to raise $2200 to cover the cost of these backpacks and items. Please make your donation by Friday, August 16, 2024. Thank you!
