Gifting Grace Project

Pack The Backpack 2022

'Pack the Backpack' is a Back-To-School initiative by Gifting Grace Project for Acadia Parish, Iberia Parish, Lafayette Parish, St Martin Parish and Vermillion Parish homeless students. Our goal is to collect and distribute 500+ backpacks with school supplies, new/gently used uniforms and NEW shoes for the 2022-2023 school year.

Donations can be dropped off at any of our drop-off locations such as Gulf Coast Bank (Lafayette Parish), Absolutely Custom Apparel, Riche's Y-Not-Stop Broussard, MC Bank Youngsville, Ann Raush - State Farm - Youngsville, Grace Home Health in Lafayette and New Iberia and many others found on our website. 

The beautiful, state of the art, Mendoza Ford in Maurice has graciously agreed to be the staging site for all of our sorting, counting, packing and delivery of the backpacks. It will take several days to get all of this accomplished and we, therefore, need YOU! Please take a moment and see the opportunities available to serve those students, most vunerable in the Acadiana area, and sign up! We can't wait to serve with you for our Annual Pack the Backpack Drive! 

For more information please call David Owens at 337-321-3356 or via email at [email protected] Please visit our website, www.GiftingGraceProject.com for more information. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook, www.facebook.com/giftgracela
