Each year during VRBC’s Backpack Drive, we deliver backpacks filled with school supplies to some of our neighboring children at Tom Landry Elementary School and the surrounding area who need assistance. This year our goal is to fill 160 backpacks, which will be given to students at Landry Elementary and the families we have been serving through Sack Summer Hunger. The church will provide the backpacks, and the congregation is asked to provide the needed school supplies.
Beginning Tuesday, July 28, and continuing through August 13, empty backpacks will be available for pick-up Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the circle drive at the south entrance of the church. A school supply list will be enclosed for your use in purchasing school supplies. Feel free to pick up and fill as many backpacks as you would like. Filled backpacks can then be returned to the church through August 13 (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, south entrance).
