Backpack Drive

posted May 13, 2018, 7:03 AM by Jessica Saunders   [ updated May 13, 2018, 7:03 AM ]

We will be collecting new and gently used backpacks to donate to the Winfree Baptist Church food pantry ministry.  Winfree’s program provides backpacks to over a dozen families here at JB Watkins. The backpacks go home with students every Friday, filled with food and snacks to help support the families’ nutritional needs over the weekend.  Purchasing the backpacks for this program is very costly as we are only one of several schools in our community serviced by this ministry. Please take a look through your closets and if you have any gently used backpacks, or wish to purchase a new one to donate, we’d love to have them. There will be a collection box located in the main lobby for donations.
