Backpack Outreach

We are now accepting support for our Backpack Outreach. Please bring any donations to the Delhi Community Presbyterian Church.

Every July and August our church collects backpacks and school supplies for the children of our community. Begun in 2001 with inspiration from Billy Graham’s organization in preparation for his Fresno ministry that fall, we decided the backpack ministry should become an annual event.

We drop off fully supplied, age appropriate backpacks to Delhi schools where administrators distribute them to kids as needed throughout the year. A teacher from El Capitan Elementary tells of seeing one new student from a family with no money for such “luxuries” blossom after receiving a backpack full of supplies. This little girl went from being quiet and withdrawn to fully engaged and eager to learn. That’s the power of a little love and caring.

Impacting Our Community for Jesus Christ – yeah, we’re trying to live it.

If you want to participate in this great annual mission project you can drop off backpacks or supplies at Community Presbyterian Church in Delhi during the months of July and August. Or monetary gifts designated “Backpacks” can be made anytime to the church and our Mission Committee will do the shopping.
