Peace Church - Back to School Backpack Event

Volunteer at Boyd Park with Peace Church

Peace Church is continuing to help assist families and children from Lakeshore, Longfellow, & Manz Elementary Schools.  In the past, this event has been held at Longfellow Elementary School.  However due to a building project happening at Longfellow, we are moving the event to Boyd Park.  We are looking for volunteers to help with the event.  You can help by serving, organizing, face painting, heavy lifting, haircuts, starting conversations, or just being a friendly face representing the love of Jesus!

We will be hosting the Back to School Backpack Event on Monday, August 20th from 5-7pm at Boyd Park.

We will be receiving donations of backpacks and gently used/new children's clothing until Sunday, August 19th.  Volunteers from Peace Church then fill the backpacks with school supplies and organize the donated clothing. 

Families then attend the event and each child is eligible for...

1.) New backpack filled with school supplies

2.) Clothing, Shoes, Blankets, Jackets, and other donated items.

3.) Haircut

4.) A hotdog meal for each family served with Cold Stone Ice Cream

5.) A box of groceries for each family from Feed My People Food Bank

 

The Collective Choir will be in attendance and will be providing music for everyone to enjoy!

 

You don't want to miss out on this chance to LOVE EAU CLAIRE!
