Back-to-School Backpack and School Supplies Project

Many children served by Gemma Services could use your support to help them be prepared for a great school year! We have set a goal to provide backpacks and school supplies for hundreds of school-aged children and teens and you can help make that happen. To read more, please click here. Would you consider helping us reach this goal, perhaps through:

  • A group collection with your colleagues, a youth group, or church.
  • Buy one/give one — when you shopping for your children, consider buying school supplies for a child in need and donate those items to Gemma!

The Details:

Who: You — your family, your congregation, your co-workers — can help kids in need in the Philadelphia area.

What: Backpacks and school supplies for children served by Gemma Services.
