St. Bart’s “Project Backpack” – 2019

St. Bart’s Outreach and Growth Committee is working with Montgomery County Public Schools to provide backpacks for kids in need. If you would like to help a young student that cannot afford a backpack and/or supplies for the new school year, there are several options:

* You can donate $15.00 per backpack

* Or, you can donate a new backpack filled with the supplies listed below

We have sponsored backpacks numerous times over the past few years and the smile on a young student’s face when they receive their new backpack is truly priceless. What a great way to help a child get a positive start to the new school year.

If you would like to donate or sponsor one or more backpacks, they are $15.00 each. We are a bit behind the curve, so we need to move fast to get the backpacks in the hands of the kids before school starts. We will have a backpack in the back of St. Bart’s this Sunday. You can drop your donations in the backpack or drop off backpacks you have purchased and filled.

Donations can be made in cash or you can make your checks payable to St. Bart’s.

If you would like to donate but will not be able to make it to St. Bart’s this weekend, please click on the following link and Let us know how many backpacks you would like to donate, or the amount you would like to donate.
