the backpack project

Each summer for more than 10 years, the families of Christ Church have collected backpacks and school supplies for children in need who will attend Broward County public schools. In 2017,  Christ Church donated nearly 900 backpacks filled with needed supplies to 23 public elementary through high schools and a handful of local ministries. The Backpack Project is a joint project of the Gracious, Energetic Motivated Servers and Freeway Student Ministry.
