A message from Heidi our Grand Worthy Advisor:
ATTENTION: Calling all backpacks!
Hi California Rainbow and friends! A Place Called Home needs our help! Every year in August, A Place Called Home holds a “Back to School” giveaway where they provide backpacks filled with school supplies to children in the community. California Rainbow has been asked to help their event by holding a backpack drive. We will be holding two backpack drives, one at the Southern Instructional (July 16th) and one at the Northern Instructional (July 23rd). If you are unable to attend either instructional but would still like to donate, please contact the Grand Assembly office at firstname.lastname@example.org. The backpacks are for children to use in the school year so please no drawstring backpacks.
Thank you for helping make a difference in getting children ready for a new school year!
A few additional details…
- We will be collecting the backpacks at the State Instructionals. Please bring your donation with you to that event.
- CAIORG will arrange for the delivery of the backpacks, so please do not send or drop off any at APCH.
- If you would like to donate additional items like pens/pencils, notebooks, markers, etc. those will be accepted but we are focused on meeting a need for 500 backpacks that APCH has.
- If you have any questions please email the Grand Assembly office.
