Back to School Backpacks (Harvey Relief)

Before Hurricane Harvey hit, we [at Church of the Apostles, or COTA] were already planning on doing a backpack drive for Love Elementary, one of the highest-need schools in Houston, and our neighbors two blocks away. It became significantly more important after the hurricane, however, when we realized that these children who already had little now, in many circumstances, had nothing. Providing backpacks and school supplies is a tangible way for us to serve not only the students, but also their families who are trying to piece back together lives, and the teachers and administration who are frequently using their own funds to fill in the gap for their students.
