God loves every kid! Let’s show them.
Every year thousands of students in Houston start the year without a backpack or the essential school supplies they need. Many feel left out and less important.
We can help change that!
Love Elementary (right around the corner from our Heights campus) needs our help to make sure each of their students can start the year off right!
Our simple goal with Backpacks for Love is to demonstrated the love of Jesus in a practical, caring way to children in our community. It may seem like a small thing, but a new backpack and supplies can do wonders for a child's confidence and sense of worth. Each backpack will include a small tag that shares a Bible verse communicating God's love for them.
It's as easy as 1-2-3
1. Purchase a backpack (or several!)
2. Fill them with supplies. Here is a link to recommended supplies for students at Love by grade. Please include an index card in the backpack that tells us what grade supplies you purchased. You can even include a small card from you and/or your children with a note of encouragement to a child.
3. Bring your backpack(s) to any Sunday gathering in August. On Sunday, August 25th we’ll pray over the backpacks, Love students, faculty and administration as well as Apostles students and teachers as they begin a new school year.
Many Love Elementary students Cannot afford school uniforms. In addition to providing backpacks for every child, we want to make sure every child has a uniform.
The cost of a polo shirt and shorts is approximately $10. We estimate 200 of Loves 400 students need help with the cost of a uniform. To purchase two uniforms per child, our goal is to raise $4,000. If we all contribute, we can do it!!
To donate you can give via credit or debit online here or with a check in the Sunday offering. And either case please indicate the gift is for uniforms.
