Alquina and Columbia UMC donate to children in need

Members of the United Methodist Churches of Alquina and Columbia have been blessed to donate eighty-one full school backpacks this week to Everton and Eastview elementary schools.

The project was initiated by Becky and Louis Lingg, who originally started the program eighteen years ago with Leslie Moore of Eastside UMC to help Eastview students who lacked the necessary school supplies. After the unsuccessful closure of the Eastside Church, Becky and Louis continued the tradition of shopping, meticulously packing and distributing backpacks to students in our community who need a little help at the beginning of the school year, along with their peers.
