CCSA Back To School Program/Drive

CCSA’s 2018 Back to School Backpack Program

Starting Sunday, July 1st the Good Sam’s Community Life Committee launches the annual collection of school supplies for CCSA’s 2018 Back to School Backpack Program. Each year, CCSA assists low-income children with backpacks and essential school supplies. Good Sam Church hopes to distribute 60 backpacks to children grades K – 9. There will be a large box at the front of the Worship Center labeled with “CCSA Back to School Backpack Program”. A Community Life member will be there after the service to answer any questions.

If you would rather not shop for the items, you may donate cash or check in any amount, and we will shop for you. Make your check out to Good Samaritan and put “Backpacks” on the memo line of your check. Money donations should be turned in at the backpack table located outside the sanctuary.

The following school items are needed and will be collected on the Sundays of June 24, July 1, 8, 15 and 22. All Good Sam members are invited to the final assembly of collected supplies into backpacks on Sunday, July 29.

Please bring as many of the following school supplies as you would like to give:
