New Macpack Supplies Coming Soon!

I have just ordered supplies for 15 backpacks for the homeless, both for men and women.  These should arrive around January 18.  I will plan a packing party for all who are interested in helping to pack backpacks after that time.  This will likely be on a Saturday afternoon to accommodate most peoples’ schedules.  Your involvement is most appreciated!

I look forward to seeing you at the packing party.
