Can You Pack a Backpack?

Backpack of my own
Since May is National Foster Care month, Timberline Church is once again offering people the chance to support foster and adoptive families in our community through A Backpack of My Own.

For the 6th year, Timberline Church and the Welcome Child Ministry will be hosting a table in the mall for several weeks starting this weekend (May 3 and 4) to provide more information and sign-up volunteers to provide backpacks filled with school supplies this fall. Since 2009, over 1000 filled backpacks have been delivered to and distributed through Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County and this year’s goal is to collect 250 backpacks. While sign-ups are happening now in conjunction with National Foster Care month, the actual collection will occur in August just in time for school.

Can you pack a backpack? If so, sign up this weekend and be a part of saying “Thank you!” to the foster and adoptive families in Larimer County.
