You can make a difference in the life of a child here in Larimer County!!!

A Backpack of My Own

Welcome Child is partnering with Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County to provide filled backpacks for foster and adoptive families of Larimer County. Thank you to all of you have signed up to fill a backpack. A personal note (attached on the outside) on the backpack is not required, but I can tell you that the kids and the parents are so blessed by those notes. In fact those are generally the first ones that the kids pick. If you have not signed up yet, it is not too late. Our drop-off dates are Aug. 6/7 and Aug. 13/14 during all services in the mall area. Filled Backpacks can also be dropped off at the church office. :)
