Backpack Attack is one of Living Word’s missions that provides school supplies for children in need. The Living Word community has been so generous in their support of this mission. The goal is to provide students in need at several Rockwood schools with school supplies for a total of 175 students. Meramec Elementary has received alternative funding and will not need our assistance this year!

Here’s how you can support this mission!

1. Donate a virtual backpack HERE or by check.

2. Sign up HERE to volunteer on:

  • Friday, August 2, for setup.
  • Saturday, August 3, for filling the backpacks and tear down.
  • Monday, August 5, at 9:30 am for loading up backpacks and supplies at Living Word.
