THE HILL — BACKPACK PROGRAM
Over the past few months, members of The Hill have begun following a call to work with elementary schools that are located in the 78741 zip code. We are excited about the creativity and momentum that we are experiencing. Members of this community have met with principals and faculty of a few elementary schools and they are very open to developing outreach opportunities with us.

To that end, The Hill has committed to helping those three elementary schools with additional supplies teacher appreciation events coming up, and Christmas events. We would welcome your help! For more information, please email The Rev. Laurence Wainwright-Maks.
