Backpack Attack 2019

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, middle, and high school. We work with the Christian Activity Center (CAC) to distribute the supplies and uniforms to children in need. There continues to be an urgent need for uniforms.  Please consider donating uniforms in addition to backpacks and school supplies. Bring your donations to any worship service at all Christ Church campuses in July.

All monetary donations can be made payable to the Christian Activity Center. If you have questions, please email Kacee Mann at

Want to help deliver donations to the CAC on August 1? Contact Kacee Mann at
