Members of Westminster Presbyterian Church and New Green Grove Church of Faith teamed Wednesday to attach Scripture passages to backpacks at Westminster’s pavilion. For years Westminster has held an annual backpack giveaway. This year’s giveaway will be held from 2 p.m. until supplies last at the Rail Spike Park Pavilion on Aug. 3. The backpacks will contain food and other items. Here,  Lucy Moses, a member of Westminster, prepares to place a backpack with Scripture attached inside a box.
