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.
