BACKpack 2 SCHOOL Donations Needed

North River Family, two of our favorite annual summer events are quickly approaching. We will have another drive-thru edition of BACKpack 2 SCHOOL for our friends and neighbors and VBS participants will be stuffing backpacks with school supplies as a way to give back.

This is where our amazing members come in....WE NEED BACKPACKS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES! Please consider picking some up to donate by May 30th. A list of supplies can be found on our webpage by clicking here.  

If you are attending an in-person North River service, you can leave donations in the donation closet in the auditorium's foyer through May 30th.

Please remember this is a small closet so we should not place random food or clothing donations here, it's only intended to hold the donations being solicited at any given time.

If you are not attending any in-person services in May, please email: northriveryes@gmail.com to arrange for your donations to be picked up.

Thank you, family, for your continued open-handedness to our community!
