Pack the Bus Collaboration
PTB_2017 (1) Click to see Supply List for 2017
We were able to serve 2,524 children in the NAFCS system this year.
Thank you for supporting our community’s children!
How it works:
Children (K-8) supplies and backpacks on the Free Lunch program in the NAFCS School System can receive new backpacks and/or basic school supplies in late summer as they return to school. This collaboration is a southern Indiana community-wide effort that works with all area churches, businesses, entities and individuals to meet the needs of elementary and middle school students who need your help to start school with their necessary school supplies. Please contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to make your pledge.
UPDATE***We do not need Backpacks this year. We have been blessed with an abundant supply.
Supplies are due to Hope Southern Indiana by July 7, 2017.
