A special thank you to the many donors who supported this social justice Hispanic/Latinx ministry.  Due to the financial generosity, we were also able to purchase 40 early-reader books in both English and Spanish.

Social justice

In support of our social justice ministries, we worked together with you on the Latinx/Hispanic Give Back with a Backpack project.  

Our goal was to provide 40 Latinx children from the Midvale Elementary School with backpacks. This small gesture will provide a strong start to the school year and give the students confidence and comfort as they begin their first day with pride.

In partnership with Target, our students will also receive the needed age-appropriate school supplies to be included with their backpacks.

Thank you for providing your financial gifts, time and backpacks for our neighbors at Midvale Elementary School.
