Each year we collect new shoes, socks, school supplies and backpacks for students in Head Start through 12th grade and then distribute them to our clients just before school starts. Starting in 2011 we incorporated this outreach into a children’s back-to-school festival called KidStock. In addition to giving out backpacks filled with school supplies there are
activities for the whole family to enjoy and the gospel will be clearly presented. (You can click on the image below to open a sponsorship form in pdf format that you can print.)

How To Get Involved

Sponsor A Child

Your tax deductible gift of $35 to sponsor a child at GAP’s KidStock will provide a school age child with a backpack filled with school supplies, new shoes, new socks, fun event and the chance to hear the Gospel presented in a way they will
understand. ($32 of each tax deductible sponsorship will be used to purchase school
supplies and other resources that are directly distributed to each recipient and $3 will be used to cover the general cost of running the KidStock Event.
