Outreach: Backpacks needed for Darby Mission
The Rev. Doris Rajagopal works very hard with the Darby Mission and is in need of backpacks for children. Specifically, they need many backpacks for elementary boys and girls and about 5-6 larger ones for middle/high school. If you would prefer to donate funds to pay for the backpacks, you may donate checks payable to The Rev. Doris Rajagopal. She will then purchase the backpacks and provide receipts. You can drop off the backpacks and/or checks at church in the box in the office hall any time before August 21st as the project wants to present the children with the backpacks on their last day of camp the following week. Please help give these children a good start to their school year with a new backpack.
Incidentally, if you wish to donate directly to the mission at any time outside of the backpack drive, you should make your check payable to the Diocese of Pennsylvania, but write “Darby Mission” on the memo line, and send it to:
The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania, ATTN: Mr. Rob Rogers,
3717 Chestnut Street, Suite 300, Philadelphia, PA, 19104
