Backpack Attack Drive-Thru Donation

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

Never has the need been greater than during this pandemic.  Please consider donating uniforms in addition to backpacks and school supplies. Bring your donations to the Fairview Heights Campus on Sunday, July 26th from 11am-2pm.

Monetary donations should be made payable to the Christian Activity Center. 

If you have questions or want to volunteer, please email Sherry Gibson at
