Drop off donations at prayer box


Leisure World’s Interfaith Council (LWIC) is sponsoring a backpack drive for students in need. The need for school supplies has never been greater, as local students head back to classrooms after the pandemic.

Working through the Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAPOC), the LWIC hopes to supply as many of the 5,000 students who need extra help as possible. Any donation amount will be appreciated, and every $20 collected will provide a student with a fully stocked backpack including papers, pens, notebooks and folders.

Those who would like to donate can drop off any amount to one of the Interfaith churches or in the LWIC’s locked prayer request box near the front door of Redeemer Lutheran Church,13564 St. Andrews Drive. Checks can be made out to the LWIC, which will combine all collected donations into a grand total that will later be sent to the Backpacks for Success Program at CAPOC.
