Backpack Supply List

 Our goal is 75 filled backpacks toward CHUM/Duluth Public Schools 800-900 backpacks for distribution to needy families.

Consider these ways to help:

Adopt a Backpack: Pick up a donated backpack at church and fill it with school supplies, maybe partnering with another individual or family.

Count Your Blessings: Purchase and fill one backpack for each child or grandchild in your family

Crowd Sourcing: Purchase one school supply item for each child’s photo on your Instagram or Facebook page today.

Donate items or write a check (big or small) toward supplies.

Assemble backpacks on designated day (tbd)

Look for supply lists soon at the Welcome Center or on church website

First UMC would welcome your donation of any stable card tables, round or square traditional size, to replace some of the rickety ones we have on hand. If you have a good condition card table you no longer need, we would be glad to give it a home at First UMC.
