A Backpack of My Own
Timberline Windsor has started collecting their filled backpacks!!! That pile will grow this weekend as people continue to bring in their backpacks. Windsor is partnering with Windsor School District and Weld County Children Services to distribute their filled backpacks.
Timberline Fort Collins will have Backpack sign-ups and supply list available in the mall this weekend. Filled Backpacks can be delivered to our Fort Collins campus the weekends of Aug. 4/5 and Aug. 11/12. Fort Collins is partnering with Foster and Adoptive Families of Larimer County and The Matthews House to distribute their filled backpacks.
When a child or youth is in a desperate situation they often don't have the supplies that they need to be successful in the classroom setting. When you take the time, expense and effort to fill a backpack for a child - you are making a deposit into their life that will not return void. :)
