THIS SUNDAY MORNING:

Taxes

Some government programs are set up as a right, meaning everybody gets it for free, like public school. Other programs are set up as a charity, like food or housing, where, if you can’t afford it (and qualify) the government will provide assistance. Do people have a right to healthcare? Is free college a right even for people who can afford to pay?

Quest of the Knapsack - How you can help:
With over 6,000 Long Beach homeless or in transition youth, your donations of new backpacks and school supplies are more important than ever! We are particularly interested in backpack donations, because for these youth, their backpack becomes their suitcase, their bookbag, and keeper of all their precious possessions.

Consider shopping online for discounted backpacks and supplies in bulk. We will be collecting supplies and knapsacks (backpacks) through August 25th!

Checks are also gratefully accepted – please write “FIA Backpack Project” in the memo section. You can place it in the collection basket or give it to Naomi. We will happily shop on your behalf.
