Backpacks for Bayview Mission

Monday, July 25 Monday, August 15

Back to school is exciting, but it can also come with jitters and trepidation. Over 250 Bayview children are at risk of returning to school without supplies. Please join us in providing school supplies and backpacks for them.

This year, you can help spread joy in several ways. Any or all will be appreciated!

  • We hope to provide at least fifty backpacks. To make this easy, please purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist which represent what the Bayview families have requested. Please choose “backpacks for Bayview” or “Phoebe Campbell’s gift registry address” as the shipping option (aka our collection site) and items need to be received on or before August 12. Please do not drop supplies off at Grace Cathedral.

  • Write a handwritten card. On August 7, a card writing table will be set up during coffee hour after the 11 am service. Or email Phoebe Campbell for a list of names to write cards at home.

  • On August 14, join the Grace Youth Group for a Pizza and Packing party after the 11 am service to help to sort and pack the supplies. Youth and Youth at Heart are welcome!

  • On August 15, backpacks will be distributed to the Bayview families at 9:30 am, and we need several volunteers to assist.  This will take place at the Bayview Mission. Contact Phoebe for more details.
