SUMMER SURPRISE. “Corpus Christi School`s Leadership Group” collected bottles all school year
It doesn’t seem possible but we are in October again… so time to think about Hope in a Bag. This year is our 5th year anniversary and most likely ‘our’ family’s last time running the project. Jesse will be in grade 12 next year and will have to devote all his extra time to studying for big exams… He is still hoping to be a Doctor so his marks are important. It would be great if someone else wanted to keep the project going but that will be up to God… if it is meant to be, He will send someone.
We got started early this year because last year by the time we went to Giant Tiger to see about our back packs… they had been donated to another charity. As you remember we had to scramble to get enough bags… and were very fortunate that money came in and London drugs in Jasper gates and Staples in Terra Losa… sold us our bags at a great price. This year we have two other Giant Tiger branches we are dealing with and we are just waiting on the word as to how many back packs we will get to start off.
Since we are thinking of this as the final year… we also want it to be our best year ever. Of course 300 bags will be hard to beat but we are believing God again and know it will be a very successful year. Pass the word around and donations can start coming in at any time… we are already setting up the house to receive them.
Bless you all and we will keep you informed
