Back Pack Ministry

In early August, we prepare back packs filled with basic supplies the local elementary school expects students to have as they begin a new school year.  This year we prepared over 45 back packs, stuffed with crayons and folders, rulers and pencils.  We also handed out coupons for free ice cream cones and haircuts from local businesses, as well as a generous dental donation of new toothbrushes and tooth paste.

This was a joint mission effort of Fairview Chapel and Mt Pleasant United Methodist Church.

You can find pictures of us as we prepared the back packs.  (To preserve the dignity of those receiving them, we do not include pictures of those getting the bags.)
