Back-to-School Backpack Drive
Correction: In our web post on Thursday, and in the Mailchimp also sent on Thursday, we mis-communicated the information about the Back-to-School Backpack Drive that we were asked to share with the Praise family. The text below, as amended Friday afternoon, is correct.
Our own Sandra Beckles is back this year with her project Back-to-School Backpack Drive for children in Peel Region. These backpacks are filled with school supplies. In the year 2020, she collected and donated more than 450 new backpacks, all filled with school supplies. Please note that backpacks will not be available for pick up in our parking lot on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Sis. Sandra Beckles is seeking volunteers to assist with the preparation of the backpacks, which will be collected by schools in Peel region, and distributed by these schools to children in need. If you wish to join, and offer a helping hand on Saturday, August 20, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Praise Cathedral Worship Centre, 6785 Millcreek Drive in Mississauga, we would welcome you.
Apologies for the communication error.
