Backpacks & Bears will kick off in October. Your participation in this program assures that a Native American child living on a poverty stricken reservation will receive a gift this Christmas. By providing children (newborn to 15) with these backpacks, the local church has an opportunity to share the hope-filled message of Christmas with their families in an effort to break the cycle of dependence and despair.
The backpacks will be delivered to the Yakama reservation and other reservations in New Mexico and Arizona in the month of December. Please consider including a personal note and pictures in the backpack. Backpacks & Bears make a difference, but only with your help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
