Annual Back-to-School Program

Month of July – collecting backpacks and school supplies for the Community Christian Service Agency’s (CCSA) Annual Back-to-School Program

Good Samaritans and friends are invited to participate in the Back-to-School” program sponsored by CCSA that provides backpacks and school supplies to children (K-9th grade) from low-income families, who might not otherwise have these essential items for the start of school in the fall. The Community of Life Committee is working to make this year’s project a meaningful and fun activity for everyone. Our goal is to assemble 60 backpacks!

Beginning on Sunday, June 30th, you may come to the Back-to-School table to see what specific school supplies you could contribute. If you would rather donate money, we will accept checks made out to Good Samaritan with “Backpacks” on the memo line. Donated backpacks and supplies must be delivered to the church no later than Thursday, July 26thA collection box labeled “School Supplies” will be just inside the main entryway to the worship center. The Community Life Committee will prepare an assembly line in Roetter Hall on Friday, July 26th in preparation for the congregation to fill the backpacks on Sunday July 28th. Everyone is invited to fill a backpack while the supply lasts following the Sunday, 10:00 am worship service.
