Jacob's Backpack Brigade


What’s a Backpack Brigade?

It is an opportunity to put smiles on children’s faces!  We will be providing backpacks, supplies and financial support for students at Lemon Road Elementary School and Kilmer Middle School who might have difficulty filling their school supply needs for the coming school year.  With this small contribution from each of us… we can take that huge piece of stress off these kids and their families as they get ready for the Fall.  

How can you participate?  

Our church members, in conjunction with Eagle Bank and Trader Joe's,  have managed to meet the needs of these kids for the past 4 years.  However, the number of families in need is rising and we want to help more kids in more ways.  So, we are looking for sponsors to help fund this effort.  100% of the funds will go towards assisting families with backpacks, school supplies, school trip fees, PE uniform costs and support of IPC's Powerpack Program which supports the same children by providing food over the weekends and summer months. 

To contribute funds for this effort or to volunteer, please see the posting at: 


One hundred percent of the funds will be used for the Backpack Brigade or other assistance to needy families in Falls Church.
