Hey DCC! We are excited to gear up for our collection of backpacks for children in need around our community, and we need your help! Thanks to your generosity last year, we provided 889 backpacks! But THIS year we would love to exceed that number and distribute even more at the “Backpack Bash” - a new event that DCC is hosting this year on Saturday, August 10th.
This event is the first of its kind in our community and will be located at DCC! We are excited to partner with COS I Love You, Pikes Peak United Way, as well as some other churches and local businesses to ensure all children in need are ready for their first day of school. There will be tons of backpacks full of supplies, haircuts for the kids, food and fun activities to provide hope to families in need, across our city. This FREE community event is shaping up to be something you don’t want to miss!
Want to serve our neighbors in need that are coming to this event? The “Backpack Bash” is going to be HUGE and we need you! There are so many different opportunities to serve during the event that play a big part in offering the love of Jesus with no strings attached.
DCC Volunteer opportunities in this Registration
Backpack sorting (Friday August 9):
Between your amazing generosity in the past of providing backpacks and the goals of our partners, we will have thousands of backpacks at our church for this event! With the help of our partners also collecting them elsewhere, we will be loading in and organizing them all at DCC, the day before our event. This will require some physical activity of walking back and forth from different areas, lifting and carrying backpacks full of supplies. If you have some time on August 9th and want to put your organizational skills to the test, please sign up!
Pre Set-up (Friday August 9):
Due to the size of this event and everything that’s included, we need help getting things set and ready for Saturday! This will include getting tables, barriers, supplies and any other equipment ready to go out in the morning. The more that is prepared and ready on Friday, the less we have to do early on Saturday morning! This position will require physical activity with heavy lifting, so please keep that in mind when signing up.
Set-up (Saturday August 10):
Calling all early risers! Since our event is kicking off at 9:00am, we need help setting up for the event early Saturday morning at 6:00am. This will include moving barriers, tables, placing signs, and anything else that should be set up prior to the start of the event. This position will require physical activity with some heavy lifting, so please keep that in mind when signing up.
