It’s time for Backpack-a-palooza — an important effort to equip at-risk students with supplies for the upcoming school year. Consider adopting a student who is residing at The HOPE Community, Tallahassee’s temporary housing for homeless families transitioning to stable housing. When you sign up, you will receive a student’s first name, hobbies/interests, and a list of their needed supplies.

Last year, FBCTLH supplied over 65 backpacks to help students have a strong start to their school year.

  • Sunday, July 29 — Names and supply lists will be available beginning on this date. Please stop by our table in the Welcome Center between 9:30AM and 12:30PM.
  • Sunday, August 5 — Drop off filled backpacks in the Connect Center, next to the church’s front office between 9:30AM–12:30PM.
