King of Glory Backpack Challenge

07.01.17 | MOM Donation

    Who are the Backpack Recipients?

    This year's Backpack Challenge is an exciting way to give back to Dallas area youth. 

    Our goal of 400 backpacks and $2,000 in monetary donations will give 400 students in Upbring Foster Services and Family Gateway an opportunity to show up on the first day of school with all of the supplies they need. 

    What are KOG members donating?

    This year, we are encouraging each family to provide one new backpack and/or make a monetary donation to help fill each backpack with supplies.  

    Why aren't we collecting school supplies?

    The Faithful Ones dollars and monetary donations will go further by purchasing supplies in bulk.  This will help MORE KIDS!

    A donation of only $5 will purchase all of the following supplies:

    3 Spiral Notebooks
    5 Pocket Folders w/ Brads
    10 Pencils
    1 Pack of Crayons
    1 Pack of Colored Pencils
    1 Glue
    1 Pair of Scissors
    2 Glue Sticks
    2 Erasers

    When are we collecting donations?

    Backpacks and monetary donations will be received in the Atrium during the entire month of July. You can also donate by placing a check in the offering plate with "Backpack Challenge" written on the memo line.

    You can also donate online!  Just click the link below.
