Backpacks Are Back!

We're partnering again with our very own Antoin Quarles and his organization H.O.P.E. (Helping Oppressed People Excel) to provide schools supplies for children in need around Baltimore. Our goal is to raise enough money to fill at least 50 backpack--which cost about $40 each--and we'll bless the backpacks before they're sent out on Sunday, August 26. (Volunteers to help pack them the Friday before, August 24, are welcomed and very much appreciated.) Please e-mail the Rev. Wood,jwood@emmanueldowntown.org, if you can help or have any questions.
