The Blue Ribbon Project – Backpacks of Love

 

Hello Church Family!

This year, we are excited to announce our Advent emphasis will be directed to The Blue Ribbon Project’s Backpacks of Love for children who are being placed in foster care homes. www.BlueRibbonProject.org

 

As described by the Executive Director and Annapolis Police Detective Taylor Pyles on Sunday, November 18th, children who are being removed from homes often do not have the time/ability to return home for needed items. The Blue Ribbon Project volunteers seek to fill that gap by providing backpacks with needed items. Their volunteers often meet the children as they are being taken to the foster home or within hours of being placed in foster care. The cost of the backpack is $30-$50 to complete and a small price to pay for comforting a child in such a confusing moment.

 

We are asking each family to complete, at least one backpack this Christmas season and return it to church. In January we will present the backpack to the Blue Ribbon Project. If you are unable to purchase the elements of the backpack but would like to donate, you can write a check between $30-50 made out to HBC with “Blue Ribbon Project” in the memo.

 

Backpacks are designated by age/gender. Please get the items on the list and bring back to church in a backpack along with the completed checklist. The item lists are available to download or by coming into the church office/narthex. 

 

Let’s be a blessing to local children!
