Neighborhood News: Back to School Back Pack Drive for our Edgewater kiddos

Hi Folks!

A number of you have brought Care for Real’s Back to School Back Pack Drive to our attention. Their mission is to help our neighbors in our community by providing food, clothing and referral services to those in need. If you are able and willing to help out their website is:

We’re guessing there are quite a few extra back packs in the neighborhood ready to go back to school!

Care for Real is preparing for our Annual School Drive and we need your help! We’re planning to distribute 800 backpacks chock full of items to ensure every child kicks off the school year right. Most needed item includes LARGE BACK PACKS for students 5th grade and above. Donations are light this year and we’re concerned we may not have enough back packs to help every kid. Please consider hosting a Back Pack Drive or dropping off Large Back Packs at our offices by August 15!”  – Care for Real

  1. Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church 1500 W Elmdale ( or is working on the supplies to go inside the backpacks right now. We are also working on our annual Community Picnic 9/7/14 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm where there will be family activities, great food off the grill and a FOOD DRIVE for Care for Real. All this in the courtyard of the church! Stop by for a chat, some food and bring a donation for Care for Real. See you then!
