Promise Packs Event
Nearly 12 million Syrians have been affected by war and more than half are children. Our goal is to pack 300 Promise Packs filled with personal care items, a blanket, school supplies and a note of encouragement. These items provide comfort and care for vulnerable children in difficult times.
Ways you can be involved:
Packing – bring your family to pack backpacks before/after any service. No reservation needed.
Give – contribute $24 at the event to cover the cost of one backpack.
