Coastside Backpack Program

It is hard to think about the coming school year when we are just starting to enjoy our summers! To make sure that all the children in our community are ready for school and have what they need to learn, Holy Family Episcopal Church is partnering with Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, Coastside HOPE, Community Methodist Church, Coastside Lutheran Church, Coastisde Jewish Community, the Migrant Student Program, St. Vincent de Paul Society Our Lady of the Pillar, the Rotary club, the Coastside Mothers Club and other community groups to working together to collect school supplies and fill backpacks for local children who cannot afford them. Last year we provided almost 400 children with backpacks. We expect a similar number or more this year. Please join us and pass this information on to other friends or coworkers whom you think would be interested in supporting our Coastside children.
