Students in the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program at John Tyler High School plan to put together 100 Blessing Backpacks to donate to the Church Under the Bridge in Tyler, and the Tyler community can help!
Requested donations include basic cold weather items (hats, scarves, gloves), non-perishable food and drinks including restaurant gift cards, stationary, pens, stamps, phone cards, toiletries and more. Students will begin filling the backpacks Tuesday, Dec. 5, and will deliver the backpacks Friday, Dec. 8.
The AVID Program performs a variety of service projects throughout the year including donation drives, blood drives and more.
Donations can be dropped off in the John Tyler High School main office. Please contact April Caldwell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
