Remember the joy of getting a new backpack when starting a new school year?
EFC team is collecting new or used backpacks (in good condition) in which a Mission trip is planned from Calgary to Guatemala in order ️to do a community service on December 15th, 2018, on the land where we will be building the orphanage, Everlasting Children's Home.
School Year starts in January; and we want to make a difference by helping Low Income Families.
Unlike our children, they don't have the benefits of having a backpack each year, our desire for them is to start school with excitement and support!
Here is why:

It is tough for families to provide everything they need to start a
We know that we can't change the world, but we can start making a difference in a child's life.
Here in North America we take everything for granted. Every year we purchase a new backpack for our kids, and we just throw out the "Old Backpack".
Want to get involved?
We aren't asking for much. Do you still have those "Old Backpacks" laying around in your home?
We will happily receive them for our missions trip, if they are still in good condition. Or do you prefer donating a new one?
We will accept it too!
This missions trip will have lots of activities for the children that live around.
Some of them will be:
- Music Performance by Christian Artist MC Marlo from Guatemala
- Face Painting
- Hair Cuts
- Dentist Check Up
- Medical Check Up
- And much more
All for Free!!!
Email or call us for details on how to drop off or for us to pick up or you can make a monetary donation, and we'll happily do the shopping for you.
Only with your support we can reach it.
We can change a child's life one backpack at a time.
We will be updating this page to keep you informed on our Backpack Drive in Guatemala
