You did it again! #YMCABACKPACKS
Last night (Monday) 40 people gathered for an exciting night of sorting school supplies and filling the backpacks donated by members of the YMCA, local business and members of South Shores Church.
Last year our goal was one hundred backpacks, we collected 194 and filled 161 (giving 33 to another YMCA in Orange County). This year our goal was 200 backpacks filled and ready for students going back to school this week. And we met that goal... and then went even further providing 281 backpacks for students in need! 281! That's nearly half of YMCA Orange County's county-wide goal of 600. Great job South Shores Church! Great job Laguna Niguel Family YMCA!
A great big thank you to Marcia Marsala, Jenn Laurie, Jennifer Heinen, the CARES team, YMCA members and all of South Shores Church for your generosity. Great things happen when God moves in His people to share His compassion and love with those in need.
