Annual Backpack Collection

 

Pender is partnering with Western Fairfax Christian Ministries to provide larger sized backpacks for 50 needy students who will be attending Chantilly High School in the fall.
WFCM’s Annual Backpack Program helps provide backpacks to 1700 students in 24 elementary, middle, and high schools in Centreville, Chantilly, Clifton and Fairfax.
Backpacks must be 18 inches high x 13 inches wide x 7-8 inches deep (other sizes will not be accepted).
Buying suggestion: Costco sells a High Sierra Backpack for under $20. Backpack donations are due by July 28th. (Please no backpacks from 5 Below — they are too small.)
