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 480.
You can support this mission by:
1. Donating a virtual backpack or
2. Volunteering for Backpack Attack on July 29 for setup, or July 30 to fill the backpacks.
We are utilizing the donations to purchase school supplies where needed. The school supplies are being purchased in bulk.
This year, volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate. Once the backpacks are filled, we will deliver them to Meramec Elementary and the Rockwood Annex building. The children will receive their backpacks at events hosted by the schools.
