WE DID IT!
On Monday, August 24th many local churches (We Care Eau Claire) distributed 1,000 backpacks for children in the Eau Claire Area School District (ECASD). The need was so great that there were many families who had to be turned away. We have now received donations and the remaining 575 students will receive their backpacks with school supplies.
If you are looking for your backpack(s) please call Peace Church at 721-834-2486 or drive to their address at 501 E. Fillmore Avenue Eau Claire, WI 54701.
