Comedian and Mobile Native "Killer Beaz" announce The “Backpack Give Back” program, a Community Sharing Program with outreach to the local homeless population.
"The Cave Ministries put out a call to citizens to reach out into our city and county of Mobile to engage our homeless population in Christian love and service.
Here's How To Help: Collect backpacks in your child's class, ask the teacher to help, see if other teachers will help, when you have collected, email us at: email@example.com
To the churches, schools, teachers, and students: We are collecting backpacks and donations all through the month of May. At this time of year, as the school season ends, we have a unique opportunity to collect used backpacks through our schools and churches, and fill them with donations of Christian love and charity. Students, we ask, at the end of the year when you no longer need or want your back pack for school, that you donate it. Drop in one of the bins or boxes provided at your school or church. Teachers, administrators, pastors and parents, we ask that you get involved. Encourage your students in an opportunity to participate, and be an example of Christian love and giving back as a community of His church."
