We will be getting together in the Camelback SDA Church rotunda to assemble hygiene packs to go in each backpack that will be given out at Christmas for the "Backpacks for Christ" program. This will be a fun way get into the holiday spirit and help your community at the same time. Dinner will be provided each night.

Time: 6:00 - 9:00 pm
Location: Camelback SDA Church Rotunda - 5902 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix, AZ 85018


Thank you to all the volunteers!

Because of your willingness to serve, we were able to put the backpacks together with hygiene packs, books, Bibles, hats and more in only two evenings. Thank you to those who coordinated the effort and stuck with it until everything was ready!
