Backpacks for Orlando Children's Church!
You are invited to join the families of Vacation Bible School to provide school supplies for children here in Central Florida. Orlando Children's Church, a local nonprofit that works with hundreds of local children each week, is hoping to provide 300 backpacks full of school supplies for this school year to the children in their program. During Vacation Bible School we will be collecting school supplies to fill 20 backpacks to donate to this program.
The exact items we need are listed below and can be brought to the church on Sunday, July 25th and left at the Welcome Center. You can learn more about Orlando Children's Church here. The 20 backpacks to be filled will be provided by the Community Outreach Ministry Group here at Maitland Pres that is funded by your annual pledges. Your gifts make a difference!
