BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK DRIVE SHOPPING LIST
At the Springfield Rescue Mission, we want children in need to start the school year off right!  Unfortunately, many of the families of these children do not have the resources for proper supplies.  For children in need, something as simple as a new backpack can build their confidence and self-esteem.  Your donations will help the children of families visiting our Give Away Center feel prepared and confident when starting this new school year.
Donate new backpacks filled with school supplies to the Springfield Rescue Mission!
