Backpack Attack 2018

Donate School Supplies in July – Help Kids in Need

Christ Church is hosting our annual drive to collect backpacks, school supplies and uniforms for East St. Louis children in elementary and high school.  We work with the Christian Activity Center (CAC) to distribute the supplies and uniforms to needy children.

There continues to be an urgent need for uniforms for these kids.  Please consider donating uniforms instead of or in addition to backpacks and school supplies.

Bring your donations to any worship service at all Christ Church campuses in July.  Designated collection areas will be set up at all locations.

Christ Church has been a supporter of the CAC since 2005. Christ Church is represented on the CAC Board of Directors.

Questions or want to make a monetary donation? Email Sherry Gibson at or call 618-604-1605.
