School Supply Drive
Store shelves are loaded with school supplies just waiting to be purchased! However, many of our neighborhood families with children who attend Park Elementary, our partnership school, cannot afford the supplies requested. In families with several children, this becomes an overwhelming financial burden.
This year the list has been scaled down to a few specific supplies especially needed: backpacks, EXPO markers, colored pencils, Kleenex tissues, zip-lock type bags of all sizes and disinfectant wipes.
Financial donations made to the church and noted for School Partnerships will also allow us to purchase items as they are needed.
Both Park and Washington Elementary participate in the AVID program, a curriculum designed to help students think about the skills they need for higher education and aspire to stay in school as long as possible. Students are allowed to wear college themed tops on designated special days. Shirts can be new or gently used. Discount and thrift stores, garage sales, and even your own closets may provide a college shirt for a Park or Washington child.
Please join us in providing items necessary to get our neighborhood children off to a great start! Of course, items for both schools can also be brought to the church throughout the year.
Baskets for collecting items will be located at both entrances.
