Thanks to everyone who made donations during Kids Club to help supply 15 filled backpacks for children newer to Canada or in families in financial need.

On Sunday, September 2, forty-two students in the Paulander Community received fully loaded backpacks! This blessing was made possible through the partnership of Westheights Community, Highland Baptist and The Journey Churches. Mosaic staff at the centre ran an outstanding bookclub and breakfast program which is where the students earned their backpack reward. The celebration on Sunday included barbecued hot dogs, a water balloon toss, and a blessing prayer for the school year. By God’s grace there were enough backpacks for the number of students in the program and great weather for the celebration!

The below photos show some of the highlights of the day and a sampling of the students receiving the backpacks.

Thank you for your generosity and for your partnership in this program.
