Donate Blessing Backpacks for Christmas

Blessings in a backpack for Christimas in Vernon

We are getting ready for Christmas, and we are excited! We are hoping you can partner with us during the Christmas giving season. At the Upper Room Mission, we have an annual tradition to give out backpacks to our guests as a gift from our community. We call them blessing backpacks.

These backpacks mean so much to our guests, especially those who are unsheltered. These are the only gift some receive this Christmas.

We are looking for backpack donations for males and females for Christmas. Would you mind labelling the backpacks you are donating (male or female)?

Wondering what to include in a backpack? Explore the following list of things that could be included in your backpack.

  • Small Bible
  • Deodorant
  • Soap
  • Washcloth
  • Towel
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothbrush Holder
  • Toothpaste
  • Comb
  • Kleenex
  • Pair of warm socks
  • Shaving Razor

    Definitely will do a backpack as I have in the past . However I object to getting religion involvedā€¦including a bible is not ok in my opinion
