What is Bowling for Backpacks & Bicycles?
Our areas homeless depend on their backpack; it’s somewhat of a life line. Most of what they own is in their backpack. You can bring an empty backpack, a full backpack or bring items to help fill backpacks. Items would be travel size toiletries, 7 day pill organizers, reading glasses, over the counter medicines, gloves, hats, sunglasses, wallets or small purses and socks.
Not only do the areas homeless depend on their backpack, some lack even the simplest mode of transportation to a job, a job interview and even doctors appointments. So if you have a bicycle that's collecting dust in the shed or garage...if you have one that's all beat up and needs some TLC, why not donate it to Good Shepherd at this event and make a difference in someone's life?
This fun tournament is for all ages and skill levels (we’ll even put the bumpers up!) and will consist of 4 person teams bowling 3 games.
We will also have great raffles throughout the day from a lot of local area supporters.
Come out and join us for a great time!
