Backpack Supply List

Backpack Supply List

Back to school time is here and you can help kids in need right here in Memphis! Simply choose one of the supply lists below and fill a backpack with the contents. Every little bit helps a child get a fresh and positive start to the new school year. Backpacks can be dropped off at Hope on the weekends before and after services or at the Church Office during business hours during the week. We appreciate all that you do to support our Urban Ministry outreach efforts!
