It's once again time for the KOG Backpack Challenge! 

Our goal is to provide backpacks, supplies, and a new book for each of the 425 children who attend Dobie Pre-K. You can help by making a monetary donation, purchasing backpacks, books, and supplies, and volunteering with stuffing and delivery.

 

Dobie Pre-K, located in the Richardson ISD, serves preschoolers (3 and 4 year olds) with financial challenges and/or developmental or physical disabilities.  Dobie has little parent involvement and teachers often provide important school supplies from their own salaries. The Backpack Challenge is just one of the many ways King of Glory supports Dobie Pre-K's teachers, students, and families. 

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

 

Make a Monetary Donation:

King of Glory is collecting monetary donations to purchase  school supplies. We are able to purchase many of the requested supplies in bulk for a lot less than can be found in the store. Donations are collected in the offering plate on Sundays, through KOGgives, and on the Venmo app @kingofgloryPlease note "BPC" on your donation.

Donate Books:

Help us send a new book home with each child! (No used or gently worn books, please.)

We have created an Amazon Wishlist to use as a reference when choosing appropriate books for the preschoolers. You do not have to purchase books from Amazon, but, if you do, we suggest using Prime so it will arrive on time.
