Backpack Attack is one of Living Word’s missions that provides school supplies for children in need for Rockwood and Meramec Elementary families. Living Word members have been so generous in their support of this mission. The goal is to provide every Meramec student and students at several Rockwood schools with school supplies for a total of 400.

Here’s how you can help!

  1. Donate a virtual backpack online or by check
  2. Sign up to volunteer
    Friday, July 28 – setup and  Saturday, July 29 – assemble the backpacks (Volunteers of all ages are welcome)

Many additional items are on the school supply list that will be purchased in bulk. Your monetary donations will help with those items.

On Monday, July 31, we need volunteers to help deliver backpacks and school supplies to Meramec Elementary and the Rockwood Annex building. The children will receive their backpacks at events hosted by the schools. If you have any questions please contact Lisa Horner, Backpack Attack Chair, at 314-753-5908 or
