Back Pack Mission

The following information is provided for you to better understand what we do, what we pack, and the approximate cost of our Mission. We are currently packing 32 bags of nutritional items each week for two elementary schools, Washington-Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Our committee does this on Thursday mornings at 9:30, and delivers them to the schools for their week-end enjoyment. The approximate cost of each bag is $7 - $8.00; 32 bags = $256 each week for the school year. The Congregation has been very generous, and with the following guideline of what we pack, we hope that your donations will continue. We will, in addition to this list, mention in Central Life the items that we may be low on that will help in your shopping for us. Items listed, with quantity put in each bag, are:
