This summer, St. Johns Lutheran Church purchased new L. L. Bean backpacks for 44 children in the Stamford area.  This was made possible through several donations from congregation members.  The backpacks were then customized with school supplies the children need based on the school that each child is to attend this fall.  Supplies were collected from community children attending our Vacation Bible School program as well as from additional congregation members and their friends.  Both kids and adults worked together to fill the backpacks full of supplies and a special treat.  They were distributed at a spaghetti dinner held for the children and their families in August.  Everyone involved had a good time and agreed that it was a very worthwhile project!
