We recently began a new local outreach initiative at Moon Valley: Foster Care Backpacks.
These backpacks are designed to provide comfort, necessities, and hope to children in foster care. We are collecting items, or completed backpacks, for all ages and will be holding a church-wide packing event on Saturday, May 15th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. to put the backpacks together to be donated.
The last day to bring items to donate is Sunday, May 9th.
Check out the link below for donation ideas, or inspiration for creating a completed backpack yourself.
