July School Supply Collection – ALL Month Long

Date: July 24, 2016
Time: 10:30 am

Month of July – collecting backpacks and school supplies for the Community Christian Service Agency’s (CCSA) Annual Back-to-School Program

Good Samaritans and friends are invited to participate in the Back-to-School” program sponsored by CCSA that provides backpacks and school supplies to children (K-9th grade) from low-income families, who might not otherwise have these essential items for the start of school in the fall.  The Community of Life Committee is working to make this year’s project a meaningful and fun activity for everyone.  Our goal is to assemble 60 backpacks!

Beginning on Sunday, June 26th, you may pick up cards at the Back-to-School table to remind you of what specific school supplies you are offering to contribute (i.e. 1 backpack, 5 3-ring binders, 4 spiral notebooks, 5 sets of colored pencils, etc.)  You may claim as many cards as you would like, knowing that those named items will be your donation. Donated backpacks and supplies must be delivered to the church no later than Thursday, July 21st.  A collection box labeled “School Supplies” will be just inside the main entryway to the worship center. The Community Life Committee will prepare an assembly line in Roetter Hall on Friday, July 22th in preparation for the congregation to fill the backpacks on Sunday July 24th.  Everyone is invited to fill a backpack while the supply lasts following the Sunday 9:30 am worship service.

Please direct questions to Beth Hannaman or Barbara Andrade.
