Backpack Fundraiser

The Salvation Army sends backpacks home to students in need. They are collecting personal hygiene products to be added to the backpacks.

For the month of October we will be collecting Toothpaste to put they products in during the year.  We will have a basket for the collection by the bulletin board in the gathering area.
