The summer is speeding along and our Covenant to Care for Children backpack initiative is underway!
This church has participated in Covenant to Care for Children’s Adopt a Social Worker program for more than a decade. We partner with a particular State of Connecticut Social Worker, Ashley. The children and families on her caseload are from Plainville and surrounding towns, and all of the backpacks and school supplies to fill them will go to those children.
There is a collection bin in the narthex, and The Mission Social Action Committee asks all of us to put this on our radar as the sales on back to school supplies begin. Those of you with school age children might want to involve them as you make choices. If you need help, Covenant to Care has a list of suggested supplies on their website: Covenanttocare.org. We welcome contributions of a backpack, or a filled backpack, or supplies.
