ONE MORE WAY TO SERVE
Join us in our mission to Go.Love.One More! This year we will be collecting donations for our friends at Village Project Africa. On November 14 & November 21st, The Backpack Project team will be in the lobby collecting monetary donations.
You can also support our partnership with Village Project Africa by donating online. $25 provides school supplies for one student at VPA.

ABOUT THE BACKPACK PROJECTJesus once used five loaves of bread and two fish from a little boy’s lunch to feed a multitude of five thousand people (John 6:1-14). He did this not only to feed the crowd, but to show his disciples (and those who are disciples today), that God can multiply what little we may have to offer and benefit more people than we could ever imagine.
This story is also what inspired our annual Backpack Project. Each year, we have the opportunity to fill backpacks with school supplies, hygiene products, and fun goodies for students, teachers and staff members at Village Project Africa in Makutano, Kenya. 2021 will be the first year that we simply collect monetary donations and buy all supplies locally in Kenya.
What began in 2011 has become an exciting annual project and an incredible way to step into the larger story of Village Project Africa.
