Our own Amanda Gosline is a missionary at Envision Atlanta, a CM&A ministry in Georgia, where she ministers to refugees. Her main area of ministry is with children, and she has a desire to provide backpacks filled with school supplies to the children she ministers to prior to their return to school at the end of July.
She is requesting 60 backpacks and the school supplies to fill them. The cost will be approximately $20/backpack. We are asking you to consider donating - cash or check (payable to Sandhills Alliance Church with note "For Back Packs") - so that our church can purchase the backpacks and supplies in bulk.
The campaign will run May 14th through the end of June. A display will be set up in the lobby of the church and donation envelopes will be made available.
On June 25 (10AM-12M)Women's Ministry will gather to assemble them. We will look for a volunteer(s) to take the backpacks to Atlanta.
Donations given over and above the amount needed for the 60 backpacks will be kept in a designated fund and used for future projects to help Amanda's kids.
