Helping a Sister church Fill and Hand out Backpacks in Barrio Logan
On Wednesday, September 20, we joined Servant Church in a really cool outreach event.
Servant meets each Sunday at Burbank Elementary School in Logan Heights, an area with the highest number of children per capita in San Diego. Each fall, they raise money to purchase backpacks and fill them with school supplies to bless every child and family in the school.
Here's a word from their pastor, Chris Sandoval:
"We are so thankful for Harbor City Church’s participation in this event! The financial support was amazing. It’s tough for a church starting out to have the resources needed to bless our neighbors and neighborhood. But the volunteers who came were fantastic! They had great attitudes, and there were so many of them! They really free our church up to be able to directly interact with the people who we were trying to bless. They gave us the chance to change this from a “Hand Out Event” to a relationship-building event where we were able to share with them the love of Christ.
And this is from one of the volunteers from Harbor:
