As students return to the classroom for the new school year, our hearts turn to those who carry a ‘backpack’ of uncertainty and worry. Young people may experience anxiety due to starting at a new school, needing to make new friends, or knowing their family is struggling to make ends meet.

Join us in Blessing the Backpacks of Students

As Christians, we know the compassion of our heavenly Father who has reminded us through the words of the apostle Peter, “God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him”. 1 Peter 5:7 (CEV)

Your Back to School donation can help chaplains offer hope to students who are anxious and feel like they are in a dark place, like the six-year-old who said to one of our chaplains, “If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t know what to do. I like to come and talk to you because after I feel better.”

Your gift of generosity also enables SRI volunteers to impart hope to participating students through stories, songs, and activities. As students perceive God’s faithfulness and provision, they experience the joy, peace and freedom of a lighter ‘backpack’ load.

We are so grateful that you enable chaplains and SRI volunteers to ‘bless the backpack’s of students with hope, reassurance and practical support, to improve wellbeing and strengthen communities.
