Back to School Packs – Appalachian Region & Local Distribution

We accept gently used backpacks. So if your child’s/grandchild’s backpack still looks good, one of our children in the Appalachian Mountains would be blessed to receive it. Please pass this along to your friends. I would love for all of our 2,200 children throughout the Appalachian Region to receive a Backpack.

Elementary School Bags:
Pencils, crayons, composition/ notebook paper, rulers, erasers, scissors, and glue stick.

Middle/High School Bags:
Pencils, coloring pencils or markers, composition notebook/paper, rulers, erasers, ink pens and calculator.

If you do not have time to shop, but would like to provide a Back to School Bag, each bag costs $10.00.

Don’t forget to mark the size on each garment you make. This is our only appeal for the Back-To-School distribution.

We use gallon Ziploc bags and mark on the outside whether Elementary or Middle School. Also, please add the ABC’s Tract found on our website.
Items for Boys – Jeans may be purchased for the boys. Outfits consisting of pants, shirt, briefs, t-shirts and socks for boys are needed. Sizes Newborn – 18 are the requested sizes.
Items for Girls – Outfits for girls include a dress, jumper or pants, and blouse, plus a slip and a little crocheted pocketbook. Tights or socks, undies, hair bow, bracelet and barrettes can be purchased to complete the outfits. Sizes Newborn – 18 are the requested sizes.

Items for Infants and Toddlers – For infants and toddlers, we can use baby and toddler clothing, baby blankets, quilts, shoes and socks.

MINISTRY NEEDS
Boy Clothing – All sizes are needed
We are running very short on outfits for our boys. We do accept gently used boys clothes.
Girls’ Clothing – We did fairly well on the various girl’s sizes. We ran out of 12-16.
The Shoe Fund – The Shoe Fund is ongoing as we like to provide a new pair of shoes with each outfit. Cost of shoes is $18 per pair. If this is where you wish your monetary donation to be applied, please note on your check.
Personal Care Kits – shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, tissues & washcloth. If you aren’t able to make the cloth bags, please place items in a Ziploc bag.

We were trying something new. It is a challenge for us to pack 1,600 plastic tubs in our trailer, so we decided to try gallon-2 gallon zip-lock bags. The WINNER is the Zip-Lock Bags by a long shot. We averaged about 2,300 gifts this year with this system. Of course, Bryan’s new bin method helped with keeping them organized for us. This method not only will help us out tremendously, but will save each of you money.

If you still wish to make the old style in the plastic tubs, by all means we will still accept them. We want to thank each of you that took part in our collection of Christmas Shoe boxes. We appreciate all the help we received and the children loved them.
