Help distribute backpacks full of school supplies to inner city youth

By September 12, 2006

USA (MNN) — The new school year is back in full swing. But for many inner-city children who lack the basic materials for learning, the beginning of the new school year is another reminder of the uphill battle to do well academically.

That’s where Here’s Life Inner City steps in to help kids start the year off right. They’re reaching out with the compassion of Christ by providing PowerPacks to poor and needy inner city children.

These backpacks filled with essential school supplies, including notebooks, scissors, eraser, ruler, crayons, paper and pencils. Not only that, they also contain an illustrated book presenting the Gospel.

These needy children rarely receive anything new, and the PowerPacks make them feel very special and help them face a new school year with excitement. It’s extending the love of God in tangible ways, to the kids who receive them, and also their families.

Here’s Life hopes to distribute 4,695 PowerPacks, and you can help. One backpack costs only $29.50 and will make a very real difference in the life of one inner city youth. Contact Here’e Life Inner City through their information listed here.
