Many families are struggling. More than 30 million students are enrolled in the free and reduced meal programs, which is a standard measure of financial stability. Many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective. In addition, schools often lack the funding to purchase necessary supplies.
We want to show the love of Jesus by creating some breathing room for families and help their students start off the new year with confidence! Help us purchase backpacks stocked with school supplies for some of our onsite partner organizations: Merrick Community Services, The Lift, and Voice in the Wilderness.
- $20 buys a new backpack for one student
- $50 buys a backpack and supplies for an elementary student
- $100 buys a backpack and supplies for a high school student
You can donate online here. Just select “School Supplies Drive” when choosing the fund.
Thanks for helping to start the school year off right for families in our community!
