OPERATION: Back 2 School
Next month, our church will be kicking off a series of drives aimed at easing the burden on struggling families with school-age children. We will have three different drives this spring and summer: Clothing & Shoe Drive, Backpack Drive, and School Supply Drive. We are kicking off with the Clothing & Shoe Drive at the end of the 2022 school year in hopes that members who have kids who’ve outgrown winter/2022 school-year clothing will be able to donate those items. We will also be accepting new items.
These three drives will culminate in an event we will host in August where we will invite local families to come and “shop” from a store we will setup at our Downtown Campus Gym. Each family will be able to obtain clothes, shoes, a backpack, and school supplies for their children for the upcoming school year. As in past years, we will again partner with local school counselors in order to reach out to families who are struggling in our community and invite them to come and shop. We hope that you will consider donating at least one item at each of these drives to benefit local families who are in need.
