Drew MylerWe have 45 backpacks still waiting for sponsors for Shepherd Community Center’s annual Back to School blast. The event is this Sunday — if you were waiting for the last minute, the last minute IS HERE!The 22nd Annual Back-to-School Blast is a joint effort throughout the city to provide young boys and girls in Indianapolis with backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. The 2015 Back-to School Blast aims to serve approximately 3000 children in our city.

Each backpack costs $35 to fill. You can bring a check this Sunday to one of our packing parties in the gym. Even if you can’t pack the bag yourself, you can still sponsor a backpack for an elementary school student in need.
