Backpacks—people carry them to school or work every day. They’re taken on planes, trains, camping trips and sleepovers. They can even be taken into crisis situations.
The relational connection you make as you hand a backpack full of food to a hungry child or a bag filled with toiletries and essentials to an abused woman starting over can last a lifetime. A child in foster care is comforted by a backpack of toys, clothing and books and a refugee feels more at home when greeted with a bag of culturally relevant items.
You and your church can meet these needs in your community, and we have the tools to help you get started:
- Weekend Food Program Backpacks
- Back-to-School Backpacks
- Backpacks for Refugees
- Backpacks for Children in Foster Care
- Backpacks for Human Trafficking Restoration
When your church purchases backpacks through Send Relief for your local ministry effort, you also make an equivalent number of backpacks available to serve people in need throughout North America through Send Relief Ministry Centers, during crisis responses and other events.
