16th Annual Advent Backpack Project
Covid-19 has changed the way we do many things, and the Advent Backpack Project looked different this year – but we had a plan! Over the past 16 years, churches from Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Guadalupe Parishes have partnered to fill backpacks with treats such as chocolates, gifts such as gloves, hats, and socks, and personal items like toothpaste, shampoo, etc. We have given these as Christmas presents to the patrons of Feeding Others of Dartmouth, our downtown Dartmouth soup kitchen.
Our 2020 campaign has come to an end.
We would like to thank everyone who filled backpacks for this year's Advent backpack campaign. May the Lord bless you and keep you may his face shine upon you.
