Back to School Bash Collection and Volunteers

In July, our Children’s Ministry will be hosting a Back to School Bash. Our Back to School Bash is an interactive event for children to visit our campus to receive uniforms, school supplies, toiletries, and a haircut before going back to school. In order to pull off this event, we need donations and a lot of volunteers. See the lists below for needed donations and areas where volunteers are needed.

 

Donations: 

  • Uniforms: New or gently used khaki/navy blue pants, skirts, shorts, shirts, belts, shoes, and new socks
  • Hygiene: toothpaste, toothbrushes, bars of soap, shampoo, deodorant
  • School Supplies: Pencils, erasers, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, composition notebooks, notebook paper, safety scissors

Please drop off donations at the display on the patio anytime between Sunday, May 20 – Wednesday, June 27.
