CCSA Backpack Stuffing Sunday, July 26 at 10:30 am

Date: July 26, 2015
Time: 11:55 am

… for the Community Christian Service Agency’s (CCSA) Annual Back-to-School Program

The Community Life Committee will prepare an assembly line in Roetter Hall on Friday, July 24th in preparation for the congregation to fill the backpacks on Sunday July 26th.

Everyone is invited to fill a backpack while the supply lasts following the Sunday 9:30 am worship service.

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!

As of Sunday, June 28th, 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 23rd. A collection box labeled “School Supplies” will be just inside the main entryway to the worship center.

Please direct questions to Cindy Taylor or Beth Hannaman.

• Pens, pencils, rulers
