Canyon View church of Christ is a church family that believes in the power of Christ working through ordinary people accomplishing the extraordinary. We have a simple faith and seek the simple truths of the Bible and call ourselves, simply, Christians. We are lovers of the Word of God and do our best to model our lives after the Word Himself, Christ our Savior.
Thank you to everyone at the Canyon View Family so much for your support of this annual community utreach! Yesterday Bob and I delivered the 20 fully-supplied backpacks to Carson Elementary School. The school staff is so appreciative of these contributions from Canyon View members. Now, the school office will contact each family in need and distribute the backpacks before school begins. The Linda Vista area has many families in need of this type of help.
We would also like to acknowledge those many anonymous contributors. This year a number of folks shopped for and filled several backpacks. Their "quiet" generosity was a major contribution. Since I can’t write individual thank-yous to you - I would like to express my sincere appreciation now.
Thanks also to all of you who faithfully and routinely give to this effort every year; to those who personally handed us backpacks, and to others who gave cash allowing us to shop for the best deals on supplies.
JaNese Hubbard will distribute some backpacks and supplies before school begins and during the year as an “on-going” and “as needed” part of this effort.— Carol Simonson
