Backpack Blitz

We are thrilled to be partnering with The Salvation Army again this year as the Backpack Blitz distribution center on the west side of Bloomington on Wednesday, August 1st!

Last year Backpack Blitz gave away over 600 backpacks so area children can head back to school feeling confident and ready to learn. The goal this year is to distribute 700 backpacks! In June, our Mission of the Month was for the Backpack Blitz. Your financial gifts will help to purchase supplies to complete the kits. If you’d like to donate specific supplies needed, you may grab a shopping list from bulletin board #3. Just place your donations in the designated box under the bulletin board on or before July 29th.


On Wednesday, August 1st from 4:00-7:00 p.m., we seek St. Paul Ambassadors to assist with distribution of the backpacks to area children and families. A fun event! Save the date NOW! If you are interested in serving as a St. Paul Distribution Ambassador, sign-up on the sheet on bulletin board #2 at the church or write “Backpack Ambassador” on the back of the connect card found in your bulletin on Sunday morning. Watch for more details in the coming weeks!
