Project Backpack Kicks Off

Many loyal supporters were successful in helping with Stage One of the Ready Set School! program. Our goal was to pair 504 students with generous sponsors. Each of these students will get a backpack filled with grade appropriate school supplies, clothing, and other necessities to begin the school year.Christian Brothers

With this need filled, we are kicking off Stage 2: Project Backpack.

a379338a-2358-4aa6-9e10-365e1d8c992dWe are currently looking for Individuals and Organizations that would like to pick one (or more) of the following grade categories and take the list to fill a backpack (or more) with the basic supplies listed: Kindergarten, Elementary, Middle School, High School. We ask that these backpacks be returned to the IFCS office (3370 S. Irving Street, Englewood, CO 80110), no later than Friday August 7th. You may also contact Todd McPherson, Director of Development (303)789-0501×111 for more information.

Can’t fill a complete backpack? There is another way you can help. You can assist the program by donating loose school supplies from our 2015 School Supply Wish List. Please return these supplies to the IFCS office or drop-off locations listed by July 27th and volunteers will assist us in creating backpacks with supplies from the donated items.

It takes financial contributions to provide this resources to our families, consider making a contribution through the IFCS’ website “Donate Now” section.

e20386db-fee9-4bcc-87e8-178670c29dcfWe would like to extend a special offer from our partners at  Christian Brothers Automotive – Highlands Ranch and  Centennial locations. Bring in your school supplies and receipt to one of these locations and they will double what you spent with a discount toward your service order (up to $25, but not toward oil changes). This special discount can be combined with regular coupons that you may have. Call them for additional details.

Reminder: Please drop-off loose school supplies by July 27 and generic “Project Backpacks” by August 7.
