The folks at Dream Center Peoria are bringing a big-time show to Peoria this month and once again they will be providing school supplies and more to thousands of kids in need, thanks to the Backpack Peoria program.
GRAMMY nominated worship band Leeland will be performing a concert at Riverside Community Church in Peoria the evening of Friday, July 27th. The concert will start at 7:00 p.m. Click on the photo above to purchase tickets online.
$15 will not only get you a ticket to see a terrific show, it will also purchase a backpack filled with supplies or a school uniform for a child who needs it.
The lines to receive those backpacks and school uniform gift cards will start forming just a few hours after the concert, as Backpack Peoria is set for Saturday, July 28th at 9:00 a.m. Medical exams will also be available.
Last year, more than 2,500 backpacks made it into the hands of local kids. (You can see the scope of the program by watching this news story from last year’s event: http://centralillinoisproud.com/fulltext/?nxd_id=191147)
This year, the Dream Center will be giving away even more…but they need your help.
So come on out Friday, July 27th for a Concert with a Cause and support this great program! Thank you and God bless.
