Backpacks for Success

August 20, 2021

All backpacks, school supplies, and monetary donations will go to Grace AME. The general cost of a full backpack is $30. Purchased items can be placed in the designated box on the front porch of the church. The items for Maiden Choice School will go directly to them. The lists are as follows:
