Backpacktacular – Backpack and School Supplies Drive

Summer in the City – Backpacktacular Project

 This July our 4th and 5th-grade students, 45Christians, will be participating in the Summer in the City Program. Since 2002, Summer in the City has expanded and evolved over the years — against an ever complex backdrop in Detroit — but it has always been a “do-ocracy” where people from different backgrounds can come together to invest their creativity and compassion into their central city. Our students will be working side-by-side with children from other areas, including Detroit.

As part of their mission project, Birmingham First will be collecting monetary donations to support the Summer in the City Backpacktacular.

Summer is, ultimately, too short. Summer in the City volunteers and Campers spend the sunny summer days making myriad memories citywide. And then, in the blink of an eye, it’s time to head back to school. As part of the mission project with Summer in the City, Birmingham First will be collecting monetary donations to support the Summer in the City Backpacktacular.

Backpacks are Summer in the City’s humble way to send 1,200 children, who are in need of school supplies, back to school in the Detroit area with a few tools that will help them as they travel through their school year.
