A Backpack of My Own - Sweet Success!! :)

Thank you Timberline Church!


Our 3rd annual "A Backpack of My Own" was a great success!!

Our Welcome Child Ministry team delivered 236 filled backpacks, 83 flash drives and 67 scientific calculators to Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County!!!

One of the board members asked me to convey a huge "Thank you" to you our church family for meeting this need for them. The families that they serve were so appreciative and blessed by your love and thoughtfulness in filling these backpacks. The personal notes were encouraging, not only to the kids who received them, but to the families who care for them as well.

Many times foster and adoptive families feel isolated in the journey that they are on. These filled backpacks helped them to know that someone cares about them and what God has called them to do.

Thank you to all of you who filled a backpack, your loving response to this need will touch the life of a child through-out the entire school year!! :)
