Backpack Drive

Union Congregational Church took over the Backpack Drive for Loaves & Fishes in 2018.  With COVID, the last two years have been a challenge, but we were still able to hold the drive in 2020 and 2021 (in August) outdoors to provide safety for all concerned.  We are very proud of the fact that we have been able to continue this important effort to provide local families in need with backpacks and school supplies.  This could not happen without the help of many donors and volunteers.  We thank everyone who participated in the 2021 Backpack drive.  Look for information on the next Backpack Drive in August 2022.

Please contact Stefanie Lempp ( or 978-502-1754 or Julie Platt ( to volunteer, or to coordinate pick-up, delivery, or shipment of bulk supplies. We would love to hear from you!
