2017 Back to School Supply Drive
Volunteering: On August 19, at University of Houston’s Sugar Land Campus, there will be an all-day charity event from 8 am – 3 pm. Many from the church have volunteered here, handing out school supplies to families and children in need, and found it very meaningful. Please sign up below if you would like to volunteer with us.
Donations: We are partnering with YMCA’s Operation Backpack. Follow their instructions (see below) and then bring your backpack to the church by Sunday, August 6th.
Financial Gifts: We are partnering with East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. They have asked us to put together specific backpacks for a group of Pre-K students. Every backpack is approximately $50.
Step 2: Write a note of encouragement and buy the following suggested school supplies:
1 package of pens
1 package of #2 pencils
1 pencil sharpener
1 24-pack of crayons or 8-pack of markers or colored pencils
1 12-inch ruler
1 pair of child safety scissors
2 pocket folders
2 spiral notebooks (100 sheets each)
1 one-inch wide binder
1 glue bottle or glue stick
1 roll of tape
School box for storing supplies
1 package ruled looseleaf 8.5 x 11 paper (wide ruled)
Step 3: Drop the stuffed backpack off at the church no later than Sunday, August 6.
