Our August Outreach supports St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, City Heights, annual Back 2 School Bash which will be held at St. Mark’s on Saturday, August 17th.
This event brings together the entire San Diego Episcopal community, by providing backpacks filled with school supplies to local refugee and low-income children in grades kindergarten through 12.
Holy Cross is supporting this event by collecting backpacks that will stand up to heavy books, supplies, gym clothes, etc. If you would like to support this outreach, please bring a medium to large multi-compartment backpack, school supplies or donation of money (please make your check out to Holy Cross and note Backpacks on the memo line) to church this Sunday or next, August 4th or 11th. You may also bring backpacks, school supplies and/or monetary donations to the church office by 4:00pm on Wednesday, August 14th. We will bless our Back 2 School offering on Sunday, August 11th.
NOTE: One of the best ‘deals’ for middle/high schoolers is the High Sierra backpack at Costco (dark colors preferred).
