    Hi all! A few years ago my church started a program called "I Love Glen Burnie". The point of the program is to find ways to support our immediate community and the people who live there.

    In coordination with the local Dept. of Social Services, the "I Love Glen Burnie" program partners with local businesses and community groups to supply children in need with backpacks full of school supplies. The names of these children are provided by their schools to the Dept. of Social Services because their families don't have enough money to provide the needed supplies for them.

    We have the names of 500 elementary aged children who need help. So far we've sponsored about 300+ backpacks. We have until Aug. 19 to get the rest of the backpacks sponsored.

    The cost of sponsoring a backpack is $30. If you are willing, I'd love your support in fulfilling this goal!

    Any support is appreciated, no matter the amount. Smaller donations will be added together to reach the $30 mark.

    You can go to www.iloveglenburnie.com to sponsor, or you can text "Bookbags 30" to 855-976-3999
    (To sponsor 2 bookbags, text "Bookbags 60" and for 3 bookbags "Bookbags 90," etc), or you can message me for information on where to mail a check.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

    All donations are tax-deductible. If you provide your mailing address we will send you a tax statement at the end of the year. :)

    Thanks to anyone who helped with this effort! We were able to meet our goal of 500 filled bookbags. :D They were all delivered to the local schools this week where the students can come pick them up before school starts. :grouphug
