3rd Annual BackPack and School Supply Giveaway

Back to School Time is Approaching!!

Time to Start Planning our

3rd Annual BackPack and School Supply Giveaway

August 29, 2010

We are calling on the "Friends of GSCC" again

to assist with this very important event.

We plan on distributing approximately 150 fully stocked backpacks this year and we hope that our supporters can find it in their heart to donate either cash or items from the list below. Any amount or quantity will help us. Our budget is very limited, but the need is growing. We want to help the children get a good start in their school year.

Many stores like WalMart have begun their school supply sales and items can be purchased for really low prices. These sales change week to week, but supplies will diminish quickly.

More information on the 3rd Annual BackPack and School Supply Giveaway will be forthcoming in the near future, but please try to help us out if you can. To donate goods, choose from the list below and call Mark at 313-452-0684 or Phyllis at 586-915-8946 to arrange for pick-up or drop-off at the Garden.
