Project Backpack 2011

Well....School starts this week!! Join Ordinary Hero in our Third Annual Project Backpack. We are headed down to the Nashville Rescue Mission this coming Wednesday to pass out backpacks filled with school supplies. Right now there are 36 homeless children living in the Family Life Center. We have about 15 children left that still need a backpack and supplies.

How can you help? These children need required backpacks and school supplies. Let us know what you can provide for these children: a backpack & supplies (or pick one, a backpack or supplies) or a monetary donation. We will provide you with a child’s name, gender, and grade specific supply list (approximately 10-15 items). Once you have your items ready we will arrange a drop off. These children will be attending Buena Vista Elementary, John Early Middle, and Pearl Cohn High School.

Are you ready to help ensure that a homeless child goes to school with supplies?

Contact Bev Stacey at If it works better for you to make a monetary donation - just visit the website's Donate page and put "Project Backpack" in the memo line. A full donation of $50 will completely cover a child's backpack and supply expenses. You may donate any amount that you would like in order to help with school expenses. Remember we are heading down there with supplies in just 2 DAYS! Click Here if you would like to see pictures from last year's Project Backpack.

As always, thank you for being an Ordinary Hero to a child in need.

Bev Stacey and Kelly Putty
