Before you get started, we encourage you to connect with your local outreach organization (if you’re unsure where to start with that, we can help). Confirm that backpacks are needed and then, what kind of practical supplies are most in demand. This is also a good opportunity to learn about additional ways your ecclesia can support these young people. This may include mentoring, employment, transportation or providing basic needs. The most helpful form of assistance however is simply by spending time with these young people, and developing strong, positive relationships.

We hope you consider this initiative to be just the first step in a fruitful journey in helping a young person find stability and meaning.

After you’ve filled out the form below, we will send you 24 backpacks, for free, to fill with supplies and donate. We will also provide postcards for your ecclesia or Sunday School school to include personalized messages.

*Please allow 2-5 days for delivery
