Whether kids go back to the physical school building or do online schooling is still yet to be determined for some school districts. The one thing we do know is that for either option – school supplies will still be needed for the families this ministry serves!
Our goal is to provide 270 backpacks to Clinton County families and extra supply boxes for the schools. You may purchase as many single items as you wish OR you can build a whole elementary backpack.
Below is the list of items needed (items in each backpack will vary based on grade level – *indicates items for elementary bag).
You may also give online and someone will shop for you.
Please return all donations by Sunday, August 9th.
For the DeWitt Campus there are bins under the Backpack display in the church lobby, or the office is open Monday-Thursday 8:30-4:30. For the St. John’s Campus the office is open on Tuesday from 12-4:00pm or Sunday mornings starting August 2nd.

More than anything this year, we ask that you pray for the schools! The administration, staff, teachers, and kids! Pray for their physical and mental well-being and the decisions that have to be made!
