Back-to-School Backpack Collection
Thank you for your generosity!  Chapel donated 400 packages of wide ruled notebook paper. Your donations are improving the lives of 600 children and lightening some of their parents’ financial worries in the westside of Colorado Springs. Chapel of Our Saviour in concert with the 21 other Westside Cares (WSC) faith communities donated school supplies to fill 600 backpacks. The backpacks are being delivered to 420 elementary school students and 180 middle/high school students in 22 schools. A special thanks to Penny, Jody, and Wendell for managing and delivering the collection.      
 
6 Million Steps for Kids
THIS Sunday , the Rev. Peter Munson will preach at the 8:30 and 10:45 services. He is the former rector of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church, Boulder, and now walks across the United States for 6 Million Steps for Kids. He is raising money for four organizations that serve children: The Episcopal Church in Colorado youth programs; the REMAR Children’s Home and Olive School in La Libertad, El Salvador; Street Fraternity in Denver; and Episcopal Relief & Development integrated early childhood development (children birth to three years old) projects. He hopes to raise as much as $6 million for the good work of these four different organizations — $1 for every step he takes on the walk. The loose plate offering on Aug. 11 will be donated to the 6 Million Steps for Kids Episcopal Church in Colorado youth programs. You can place your donations in envelopes provided for the services on Aug. 11 or you can donate online. You can learn more about the project or make a donation online at 6millionstepsforkids.org.
