As announced at our July meeting, we are collecting backpacks and school supplies at the August meeting. Please consider making a backpack or donating school supplies (or both). 🙂
The pattern can be modified to make the backpack larger, or perhaps to add a pocket to the front. If you would like to use another pattern, please do so, keeping size in mind. The backpack should not be smaller than the pattern we have suggested. We ask that the straps of the backpack be made of fabric, webbing, etc. and not made of cord.
Here is a list of school supplies to consider donating:
Pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, markers, erasers, marbled notebooks (composition books), spiral notebooks, rulers, pocket folders, tissues, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer (non-scented), washable glue sticks, school glue, etc.
Please contact us at njmqginfo at gmail dot com with any questions.
