Backpack Project

Thank you for the financial support to help pay for the items in the hygiene kit going to the Backpack Ministry of the Interfaith Welcome Coalition (IWC) in San Antonio. Without you, that local project would have to be discontinued. We meet on the second Thursday of each month to learn via Zoom about the current situation at our southern border from people who are directly involved. We then assemble the hygiene kits and someone (usually Hilary and Mark Mosty) takes them to a El Divino Salvador United Methodist Church in San Antonio. Everyone one is welcome to help in any way they can..

The backpacks are given to documented asylum seekers at the bus station who are on their way to sponsors across the country. The backpacks make their journey a little easier because many have nothing; the little they had was too often stolen from them. It is our chance to show kindness to those arriving in our country under difficult circumstances. The local project began late in 2018 and has evolved over time as politics and the pandemic influenced the way of participating. Although not sponsored by TDW, it has played an integral part through the support and involvement of members.

Next Zoom Meeting begins at 10:00

Kit Making Session 11:30 a.m.
