City Kids Festival to Distribute Backpacks Full of Supplies
The free event sponsored by Redwood Gospel Mission blesses hundreds of needy school-aged children with necessary school supplies stuffed into a stylish backpack.
Once again there will be free activities such as a hotdog lunch and a huge book giveaway; plus every pre-registered child will receive a backpack stuffed full with everything they need for school. You and your church can participate in hosting this day of joyous celebration!
Individuals can go to www.srmission.org/
Do you want to do something before then? You can collect items to fill a backpack. The link on the home page of www.srmission.org will take you to the City Kids Festival page. Look for further instructions in the left column.
If you know of someone with children in the Santa Rosa school system who needs help with school supplies, send them to the Redwood Gospel Mission website (either of the links shown above). There they will find a page that gives full instructions, in both English and Spanish, on how to pre-register your child for a backpack. Or have them call the office, 707-578-1830.
Registration begins July 16th and only the backpacks require pre-registration.
Spread the word and help make this the best City Kids Festival yet!
