Eastridge Church Lead Pastor, Steve Jamison, is excited about the opportunity to give away backpacks to Seattle-area children. “Every year our annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway meets a very real need in the West Seattle community, so much so that we added a toy giveaway at Christmas two years ago. We wanted to build on that opportunity to give back to the community, which is why we hosted a backpack giveaway last summer to do something more to help neighborhood families,” he said. “This summer we’re again helping to give kids a jump start to the school year by giving away backpacks loaded with supplies and throwing a fun summer festival event. It’s a tangible way that we can extend a blessing to the families in the community.”

The backpack giveaway and activities are 1-3 pm as supplies last. Onsite registration is required. One backpack per child in 1st-12th grade. Child must be present to receive backpack.

Admission to the Summer Festival is free. Find all the latest info at EastridgeToday.com.
