The First Presbyterian Church is holding a backpack drive for Detroit-area Foster Children returning to a new school year in Michigan. Please see the list (below) or in our Friday email detailing all the items needed for these students at their various grade levels. This collection will be held on Thurs., Aug 20 from 1 pm – 6 pm in the church parking lot.
If purchasing items from the list, creating a pre loaded backpack would be most helpful (Five Below is a great option to shop). If you are bringing individual school supplies, we would be grateful if you could presort the items, ex. crayons in one bag, folders in another, etc.
If it is easier or if you are unable to shop, consider offering a donation of $25 by check (payable to the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth, with the note Backpacks written on the memo line) or by credit card via the GIVE page on the church’s website to purchase a loaded backpack. We will NOT be able to take cash donations.
Please see the donation list for items needed for students at each grade level.
Please contact Peggy Fisher-Kmieiciak (by email or (734)953-1044) with questions.
