Backpacks & More Fest

10-noon on Church Lawn & More Fest

“Backpacks, Supplies, & More”

Saturday, August 19, 10 am -12 pm on the Christ Episcopal Church Lawn

Students! Start the new school year with a new backpack and plenty of good will!

Students Pre-K-Grade 12 are invited to receive new backpacks, filled with age appropriate supplies, at this free distribution event sponsored by Freedom Plains United Presbyterian Church and Christ Episcopal Church.  The day is filled with fun and community spirit as the church campus adopts a carnival atmosphere complete with bouncy houses, and face painting.


Local fire and law officers are on hand to share their work and equipment: kids can get up close to the fire engine or pet the sheriff’s K-9 unit. Rotary Club generously provides a picnic lunch and additional vendors offer helpful and educational information.

Financial support for this event is provided by local businesses, individuals, and other area churches. ¬†Distribution of the packs is run entirely by volunteers; if you would like to assist in the effort, or if you have questions about the distribution, please you would like to assist with this event or have questions, please send a note to [email protected].
