Backpackssmall

Mission accomplished! This summer we filled 20 backpacks brimming with school supplies as gifts to children in need at Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School.

Grace Church of Alexandria has met for eight years at our stellar local public school–Samuel W. Tucker Elementary. For the second year our congregation gathered school supplies to fill twenty backpacks. Each backpack (with colored pencils, highlighters, safety scissors, notebook paper and more) has been given to a child who is not able to start the school year with a full complement of supplies. A gospel tract and invite to our church family was included in each pack.

Thanks to each of you who contributed to this gift! A special soutout to Dominique Johnson and Linda Chargualaf for spearheading this project. And our appreciation to the staff and teachers of Samuel W. Tucker Elementary who allow us to share the facilities of this community space.
