BACKPACK DRIVE

Want to show families in the Avon region the love of Jesus in a tangible way? Donating and assembling backpacks for families in need is a great way to show them that they are loved.

Up until September 20th, backpacks filled with the school supplies listed below can be dropped off at the Connection Center at Grace Church Avon (1o1 Wales Avenue, Avon, MA 02322), Monday through Thursday between 9 and 4pm, or during weekend services.

Have questions, or want to help deliver the backpacks to schools? Email our Community Team at  Avon@ThatsGrace.org.,
