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. You can just donate a backpack or the goodies (see list below) for a backpack or both. If you are providing a full backpack, 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.
- Toothbrush Holder
- Pair of warm socks
- Shaving Razor
- Shaving Cream
- Nail Clippers
- Flash Light
- Hand warmers
- Bottle of water
Help us make Christmas special
We love for you to help us make this Christmas special for our guests. We will be collecting backpacks until December 16th. Will you join us? All blessing backpacks will be given to our guests on December 23rd.
