Thank you to Smith Family and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church for Collecting 250 Backpacks!


It’s back to school time, that means LSMNJ is gearing up to distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to children throughout LSMNJ programs.

A special thanks to Jason Smith and his family for organizing the backpack drive at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Somerville. Each year they set out to beat their previous years collection and this year came to an all time high, donating 250 backpacks! Jason is currently a junior in high school and his goal is to collect 300 backpacks in one drive by the time he graduates high school. We are sure next year they will beat this year’s collection and we are anxious to see them reach their goal!

Thank you to Jason, the Smith family, and everyone who donated at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Somerville!
