One of our deepest passions is impacting others in our community with the love of Jesus Christ. Through our Community Impact ministries, we mobilize and equip the people of Hill Country to make a difference in the lives of those around us, serving them in a variety of ways.
Along with our ongoing ministries, we have some exciting initiatives right now. Be sure to also check out our calendar of events to the right of this page.
A new school year is like a new box of Crayons – fresh, bright and full of potential. However, thousands of Leander and Round Rock ISD elementary and middle school students may not have the resources to start school with a backpack and basic school supplies. You can help these students be ready to go back to school by donating and volunteering through Backpack Attack on August 1 - 3.
Your online donations allow us to purchase new materials at manufacturer's cost. For every $8 donated, we can provide a backpack filled with grade-specific school supplies, with the goal of reducing the performance gap in our schools based on socio-economic status. You can help meet the needs of up to 3,200 students with your generous donations.
We need hundreds of volunteers to help with this three-day event on Aug 1 - 3.
Thursday, Aug 1, 2:00 - 5:00 pm
Set up the LEO Center for the weekend. Includes arranging tables and chairs and unpacking the boxes of supplies.
Friday, Aug 2, 8:30 am - 11:30 am (or until finished)
Start filling backpacks at 8:30 and continue until we finish. Come and go as needed. Breakfast/snacks will be provided.
Saturday, Aug 3, 7:00 am - 1:00 pm
Serve the families coming to pick up their backpacks. Greeters and hosts are needed for bounce houses, face painting and refreshments along with backpack distribution and additional family services.
