OUTREACH OPPORTUNITY – BACKPACK PROJECT
To branch off of our St. Paul Lutheran church pantry we will be putting together care backpacks for Sherwood, Oregon, and surrounding areas for the homeless. This is an Outreach project for St. Paul in the Sherwood, Oregon community.
These backpacks go with the officers as they patrol because they see first-hand where the need is and will hand these backpacks out to those people in dire need.
This is a way to help people who don’t have the means to come to our food pantry for help.
If you’d like to help with this project please contact the office. We will be working closely with the Sherwood, Oregon Police Department’s Chaplain.
