The Backpack Attack Mountain is growing! 102 Backpacks have been collected. 112 school uniforms and 30 extra shirts have been donated.
That’s double what was collected last week!
But time is running out! We have two weeks left. As always we are behind where we thought we’d be by now. Last year, we collected 648 backpacks filled with school supplies, 330 uniforms and 148 extra shirts for children in East St. Louis.
Let’s make sure we collect around the same number this year.
Buy a backpack and fill it with school supplies. Get a school supply list at the Welcome Center or Sync Center. Or pick an ornament off the Uniform Giving Tree at each of the campuses and buy a uniform.
Invite your friends, family and co-workers to help us build Backpack Mountain. And let’s put backpacks, school supplies and uniforms in the hands of kids who need them to get the new school year off to a great start!
Your donations support families in East St. Louis through the Christian Activity Center (CAC). Christ Church works with the CAC to distribute backpacks, supplies and uniforms to needy children.
Please bring your backpacks, school supplies and uniform donations to any worship service at all Christ Church campuses through July 31.
